Lions injury report: Calvin Johnson remains out

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson once again missed practice on Wednesday.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson did not practice on Wednesday. Taking Wednesdays off is nothing new for him, but his absence was more meaningful this week considering he didn't play last week. His status for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns is up in the air, and Jim Schwartz indicated that Johnson may end up being a game-time decision.

In other injured wide receiver news, Nate Burleson took part in some individual drills on Wednesday. He recently got his cast off, and he got to show off his scar and new brace after Wednesday's practice:

The timetable for his return is unclear, but it seems unlikely that Burleson will be back until November. Even so, it's a good sign that he is seemingly making so much progress in his recovery from a broken arm, as the Lions need him back sooner rather than later.

Here's the full Lions injury report for Wednesday:

RB Theo Riddick (concussion) - Did not practice
WR Nate Burleson (forearm) - Did not practice
WR Calvin Johnson (knee) - Did not practice
TE Tony Scheffler (concussion) - Did not practice
