Lions injury report: Calvin Johnson gets a day off

New, comments

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday, likely because he simply got a day off to rest.

Only four players are on this week's injury report right now for the Detroit Lions. One of them, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, missed practice on Wednesday with an ankle injury. This is nothing new for Johnson, who has dealt with an ankle injury nearly all season, and chances are he was merely given a day off on Wednesday.

Also on the injury report are running back Joique Bell and cornerback Mohammed Seisay. Bell was limited on Wednesday with an Achilles injury, but it doesn't sound serious.

Seisay fully practiced after missing last week's game with a hamstring injury. He should be good to go on Sunday.

The other player on the injury report is defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who has been out for some time now with a knee injury. It's highly unlikely that he will be back this week, but he could still return in the playoffs considering the Lions haven't put him on injured reserve just yet.

Here's the Lions' full injury report for Wednesday:

RB Joique Bell (Achilles) - Limited in practice
WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) - Did not practice
DT Nick Fairley (knee) - Did not practice
CB Mohammed Seisay (hamstring) - Fully practiced
