UPDATE: Calvin Johnson WILL play today, though it may be in a limited role.
As we lead in to today’s full schedule of NFL action, there is still no word on the status of Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson. The man known as “Megatron” has been dealing with a nagging knee injury that kept him out of last week’s game against the Green Bay Packers.
For today’s game against the Cleveland Browns, the Lions and fantasy football owners are waiting on official word for their top offensive threat.
Johnson will be a game-time decision for the match up, so stay tuned to see whether or not he will be suiting up for the game.
Without Johnson, the Cleveland Browns already impressive defense will have a great opportunity to shut down the Lions offense and continue the Browns winning streak.
We should know more about Johnson’s availability for today’s game in just a couple of hours when the official inactives lists are announced. Until then, monitor the situation closely if you plan on putting Johnson in your fantasy football starting line up.
