Lions-Vikings injury report: Calvin Johnson doubtful for Sunday

It appears that the Detroit Lions will be without Calvin Johnson on Sunday.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

After missing practice for a third straight day, wide receiver Calvin Johnson was declared doubtful for Sunday's Detroit Lions game. This means that the Lions will likely be without him barring a miraculous recovery in the next two days, and they will likely be without Reggie Bush as well. Bush did say on Friday that he's going to be a game-time decision, and he's questionable for Sunday, but chances are the Lions will have to get by on offense without two of their biggest playmakers.

In other injury news, the Lions will again be without tight end Joseph Fauria and linebacker Travis Lewis. Both players also missed practice all week, and they have been declared out as a result.

Here's the Lions' final injury report for Week 6:

RB Reggie Bush (ankle) - Questionable
RB Joique Bell (concussion) - Probable
RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) - Probable
WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) - Doubtful
TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) - Out
LB Travis Lewis (quadricep) - Out
CB Cassius Vaughn (ankle) - Probable
S Jerome Couplin (ribs) - Probable

And here's the Vikings' final injury report for Week 6:

QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) - Probable
RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) - Probable
RB Matt Asiata (groin) - Probable
WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) - Probable
TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin) - Out
DT Sharrif Floyd (elbow) - Probable
LB Chad Greenway (hand/rib) - Doubtful
LB Michael Mauti (foot) - Probable
S Harrison Smith (ankle) - Questionable
