Lions injury report: Calvin Johnson practices on limited basis

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Calvin Johnson returned to practice on Thursday on a limited basis.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson's status for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns remains up in the air, but he returned to practice on Thursday. Granted, he only took part in some position drills and had a brace on his right knee, according to Dave Birkett, but at least he was able to get on the field. That's a step in the right direction, and hopefully it's a sign that by Sunday he will be good to go.

In all likelihood, we will have to wait until the inactives come out on Sunday to find out if Johnson can play. He is keeping things close to the vest in order to keep the Browns in the dark about the situation.

Here's the Lions' full injury report for Thursday:

RB Theo Riddick (concussion) - Did not practice
WR Nate Burleson (forearm) - Did not practice
WR Calvin Johnson (knee) - Limited in practice
TE Tony Scheffler (concussion) - Did not practice
OT Jason Fox (knee) - Did not practice
LB Ashlee Palmer (ankle) - Did not practice
CB Chris Houston (hamstring) - Limited in practice
S Louis Delmas (knee) - Limited in practice
S Glover Quin (ankle) - Limited in practice
