Calvin Johnson Prepares To Return

Lions_Johnson_2013The Lions played without wide receiver Calvin Johnson on Sunday and the play of their offense in a 22-9 loss to the Packers was a big reminder of how much Johnson means to the team.

After the contest, Johnson said he felt that he was “close” to playing after an early workout at Lambeau Field on Sunday, but the decision was ultimately made to rest his aching knee this week in hopes of getting back to full speed as quickly as possible. Will that be in time for next weekend’s date with the Browns?
