Lions Training Camp: Calvin Johnson Day-To-Day With Shoulder Injury

The Detroit Lions hit the practice field on Sunday for the first time since their preseason opener. They were forced to practice indoors because of bad weather, and they were without a lengthy list of players thanks to numerous injuries.

The most notable player to join the list of players unable to practice was WR Calvin Johnson. He suffered a bruised shoulder against the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday and is considered day-to-day by the Lions.

QB Drew Stanton also joined the list of players that missed practice. He had a puncture wound in his right elbow and needed two stitches to close it. In order to prevent an infection, the Lions decided to keep him out from practice. It's nothing serious, thankfully.

Other players out on Sunday were RB Maurice Morris, WR Titus Young, OT Jeff Backus, OT Isaac Sowells, OT Jason Fox, DT Andre Fluellen, DT Quinn Pitcock, DT Nick Fairley, CB Alphonso Smith and S Randy Phillips.
