  • Johnson (ankle) rushed 14 times for 51 yards and a touchdown and brought in all six of his targets for 38 yards and another score in the Lions' 34-22 loss to the Bears on Sunday. He also lost a fumble. Johnson still saw a decent workload on the ground considering the Lions were behind by a sizable margin in the second half, and he drew even with both Kenny Golladay and backfield mate Theo Riddick for the team lead in receptions. It's particularly encouraging to see Johnson remain involved in the game plan as a pass-catching option with the Lions down by multiple scores, a role that previously would been the near-exclusive domain of Riddick. Johnson and the Lions will look for a more favorable game script Week 11 against the Panthers, but it's already clear that the rookie is now the unquestioned lead back in Motown.

  • Lions' Kerryon Johnson: Suiting up Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game in Chicago. Looking at the season as a whole, Johnson easily leads Lions running backs in share of offensive snaps (48.8 percent). Elsewhere in the backfield, Theo Riddick's usage (32.7) was impacted by back-to-back absences Week 7 and 8, and LeGarrette Blount (24 percent) primarily has been a short-yardage specialist. While Johnson will gut out an ankle injury, he's one week removed from his second-worst mark in scrimmage yards (44) this season and will face the Bears' third-ranked run defense (85 yards per game), making it difficult to trust the rookie RB.

  • Lions' Kerryon Johnson: Slated to play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, is expected to play, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Johnson was a participant in each of the Lions' three practices this week, but his reps were limited as a result of the ankle he first tweaked in Week 5 against the Packers. The issue hasn't resulted in his snap counts suffering over the subsequent three contests, but it's worth noting that Johnson hasn't been especially effective on the ground the past two weeks, amassing just 59 rushing yards on 20 attempts. In addition to potentially being less than fully healthy while taking on a quality Bears front seven, Johnson's involvement in the passing game also seems to be trending down after Theo Riddick returned from a two-game absence to notch seven receptions in the Week 9 loss to the Vikings.

  • Johnson (ankle) remained limited at practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Chicago. Johnson was a limited practice participant throughout the week, while backfield mate LeGarrette Blount (knee) progressed to a full session Friday. The Lions seem likely to have their entire backfield available Sunday, but we may not know for sure until inactive lists are released approximately 90 minutes before the 1:00 PM ET kickoff. Johnson will have to deal with a tough matchup if he's cleared to play, facing a Chicago defense that's allowing just 3.7 yards per carry and 85 rushing yards per game this season.

  • Johnson (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. The Lions have capped Johnson's reps in both of their first two practices of Week 10, but his status for Sunday's game against the Bears doesn't appear to be in any peril. That being said, Johnson could clear up any lingering concern about his outlook by putting in a full session Friday. Johnson has supplanted LeGarrette Blount (knee) as the Lions' primary ballcarrier, though the rookie's involvement in the passing game took a hit in the Week 9 loss to the Vikings when Theo Riddick returned from a two-game absence.
