Lions at Browns injury report: Calvin Johnson questionable for Sunday

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is questionable for Sunday's game.

The Detroit Lions have listed wide receiver Calvin Johnson as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. That's the same status as last week, but the chances of him actually playing are much better this week. Why? Well, he's now practiced two days in a row, and he didn't even have a knee brace on as he went through some drills on Friday, according to Carlos Monarrez. What's more, he was "much more active," according to Kyle Meinke, and he actually ran routes with the other receivers. All signs point to him playing.

Two players who won't be playing on Sunday are running back Theo Riddick and tight end Tony Scheffler. Neither player has been cleared to return from a concussion, and Michael Rothstein reports that neither player was even at the Lions' facility on Friday. With them out, expect Mikel Leshoure to be active and Joseph Fauria to receive more playing time.

Here's the Lions' full final injury report:

RB Theo Riddick (concussion) - Out
WR Nate Burleson (forearm) - Out
WR Calvin Johnson (knee) - Questionable
TE Tony Scheffler (concussion) - Out
OT Jason Fox (knee) - Doubtful
LB Ashlee Palmer (ankle) - Probable
CB Chris Houston (hamstring) - Probable
S Louis Delmas (knee) - Probable

And here's the Browns' final injury report:

DE Desmond Bryant (illness) - Probable
DE Billy Winn (quadriceps) - Out
