Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson was held out of last week’s game against the division rival Green Bay Packers with knee injury and his status for this week’s game is in jeopardy once again. According to a report from MLive.com, the man known as “Megatron” is considered a game-time decision for this week’s match up against the Cleveland Browns.

The Lions are already thing at wide receiver after losing Nate Burleson to a broken arm, so being without Johnson is a devastating blow to Matthew Stafford and the offense.

Without Calvin Johnson, the team will need to rely heavily on second-round pick Ryan Broyles, Kris Durham and Pat Edwards, which would obviously leave a lot to be desired.

The Browns have some great offensive weapons of their own in Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon, so believe it or not, the Lions could be out-manned when it comes to weapons on the offensive side of the ball.

Detroit is sitting at 3-2 on the season and they share the NFC North lead with the Chicago Bears, but they are in danger of falling behind in the division thanks to the absence of their star.
