  • Good news, Detroit Lions fans and Calvin Johnson fantasy owners: Megatron is on track to return after the Lions' bye week. Johnson hasn't played since Oct. 5 because of a high-ankle sprain. By the time the Miami Dolphins game rolls around on Nov. 9, Johnson will have had more than a month off from game action, so hopefully he will be at or close to 100 percent by then.

  • Speaking of injuries, this sounds encouraging for Nick Fairley: This goes along with the report from ESPN earlier this week that indicated that Fairley will miss 4-5 weeks with a sprained MCL and PCL. Jim Caldwell later denied a timetable had been set for Fairley's return, but at this point all signs point to him coming back in a month or so.

  • James Ihedigbo did an AMA on Reddit on Tuesday.

  • Wow:
  • Golden Tate, Ndamukong Suh and DeAndre Levy made The MMQB's Midseason All-Pro Team.

  • Tate was mic'd up for the Lions' game in London last week.
