Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will play in Sunday's game against the New York Giants after being listed questionable for the contest due to a knee injury.

Several media reports Sunday morning had stated that the three-time All-Pro was to be a game-time decision for Detroit's important Week 16 clash.

Cornerbacks Chris Houston and Rashean Mathis, both of whom had also been questionable coming in, are inactive. Houston will miss a second straight week with a toe injury, while Mathis is dealing with an illness.
