Calvin Johnson, after returning to practice on Friday was held out again on Saturday and is now listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Saints. Johnson has been listed as questionable for the past three games, so he will likely play on Monday. However, with the Detroit Lions officially eliminated from playoff contention, Jim Caldwell may choose to hold him out as a precaution anyway.

Joining Johnson on the questionable list is Eric Ebron, who did not practice Saturday because of the illness that had him limited on Friday. Michael Ola and Glover Quin are also questionable for the second and third consecutive week respectively.

On the Saints side, New Orleans enters the game very healthy. Their biggest injury concerns, safety Jairus Byrd and left tackle Terron Armstead, are both listed as probable.

Here's a look at the Lions full injury report:

TE Eric Ebron (illness) - questionable
WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) - questionable 
DT Haloti Ngata (neck) - questionable
OT Michael Ola (knee) - questionable
S Glover Quin (ankle) - questionable
WR Lance Moore (ankle) - probable

And here's the Saints report:

OT Terron Armstead (knee) - probable
S Jairus Byrd (knee) - probable
WR Marques Colston (not injury related) - probable
G Jahri Evans (ankle) - probable
DT John Jenkins (concussion) - probable
OT Zach Strief (hip/shoulder) - probable
