Lions WR Johnson misses practice

The Sports NetworkDecember 26, 2013 

Allen Park, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was held out of practice on Thursday, due to a nagging knee/ankle issue.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said that a decision on whether or not the club's leading receiver will suit up in Sunday's season finale against Minnesota may not come until shortly before game time.

Johnson had been listed as questionable for last week's 23-20 overtime loss against the New York Giants. He played limited minutes in the contest, recording just three catches for 43 yards.

Also sitting out the session were tackle LaAdrian Waddle (ankle), cornerbacks Bill Bentley (concussion) and Chris Houston (toe), linebacker DeAndre Levy (foot), safety Johnson Wendling (ankle) and guard/center Dylan Gandy.
