Lions' Kerryon Johnson: Listed as non-participant Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) is listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated practice report, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Considered week to week with a knee sprain, Johnson doesn't seem to have any real shot at playing in Thursday's game against the Bears. He suffered the injury during the second half of Sunday's 20-19 win over the Panthers, finishing with 15 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for 10 yards. The Lions likely will rely on some combination of Theo Riddick, LeGarrette Blount and Zach Zenner in a difficult Thanksgiving day matchup. There is some good news for the injury-riddled Detroit offense, with Johnson expected to avoid surgery and potentially back in the mix for Week 13 against the Rams.

Lions' Kerryon Johnson: Considered week-to-week with sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has been diagnosed with a knee sprain and is considered week to week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

While not expected to require surgery, Johnson doesn't seem to have much chance at playing in Thursday's game against the Bears. His likely absence leaves the Detroit backfield in the hands of Theo Riddick, LeGarrette Blount and Zach Zenner -- a trio that doesn't exactly inspire confidence outside of highly-specialized roles. With Marvin Jones (knee) also in danger of missing the Thanksgiving contest, Matthew Stafford and Kenny Golladay won't have much help against a stellar Bears defense.

Lions' Kerryon Johnson: Knee injury believed to be sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although Johnson is slated for an MRI of his left knee Monday, the Lions believe the running back sustained a sprain and nothing more, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

If the MRI confirms a sprain, there's a chance Johnson won't miss much, if any time, but it'll have to be relatively minor to gain clearance with the Lions taking the field Thanksgiving, per usual. On the season, he's accrued 641 yards on the ground, 213 yards a receiver and four touchdowns total. Any absence would lead to a timeshare at running back between bruiser LeGarrette Blount and pass-catching option Theo Riddick.

Lions' Kerryon Johnson: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's contest against the Panthers, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

The severity of the left knee injury isn't known, but the Lions won't risk any more Week 11 reps for the dynamic rookie. With Johnson out of commission, LeGarrette Blount will serve as the short-yardage back while Theo Riddick handles pass-catching duties.
