Lions “Strongly” Considering Holding Calvin Johnson Out For Week 6


Lions HC Jim Caldwell told reporters on Monday that he plans to “strongly” consider holding WR Calvin Johnson out of Week 6’s game against the Vikings, per Michael Rothstein.

Peter King of MMQB.com mentioned earlier this morning that he has head Johnson could miss “a week or two” after he aggravated his ankle injury.

Johnson left the game after he took a hit from Leodis McKelvin to his right knee. He finished the game with one reception for seven yards before exiting.

On the season, Johnson has 22 receptions for 348 yards and two touchdowns over the course of four games. We’ll have more updates regarding his status throughout the week.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press writes that Lions WR Calvin Johnson could be in danger of missing Week 6’s game against the Vikings after he re-injured his ankle on Sunday.

Lions HC Jim Caldwell said he’s not sure how serious Johnson’s ankle injury is at this time, but he will undergo further testing on Monday.

“I won’t be certain if it’s a long-term issue, but he did take a pretty good whack right there on the side of his leg,” Caldwell said. “They looked at it, but they’ll evaluate him further, probably tomorrow and get a good look at him.”
