Going into last week's game, there was uncertainty surrounding the status of Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson. He was expected to play, but it wasn't a sure thing by any means with him being listed as questionable. This week, however, the situation is much different. Johnson practiced all week, and he is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals as a result. Johnson is not only expected to play, but his role in the offense should be much larger than it was last week.
In other injury news, running back Theo Riddick returned to practice on Friday. It was his first practice since suffering a concussion against the Green Bay Packers. He's actually only listed as questionable for Sunday, but the fact that he practiced is a positive sign for his status going forward.
Here's the Lions' final injury report for this week:
RB Joique Bell (ribs) - Questionable
RB Theo Riddick (concussion) - Questionable
