Detroit Lions Injury Report, Week 17: Calvin Johnson Will Probably Play

The Detroit Lions are already in the playoffs, but can lock up the fifth seed with a victory in their regular season finale when they play the Green Bay Packers this weekend. The team's injury report didn't look promising earlier in the week, but the status of wide receiver Calvin Johnson has helped things quite a bit heading into Week 17.

Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday as he tried to get over an Achilles injury, but Megatron apparently recovered just fine as he's listed as probable for Sunday's game. Considering he was limited in Friday's practice, though, he may not be quite as healthy as he should be.

No players are listed as out for the Lions, but defensive backs Aaron Berry and Louis Delmas are both doubtful. The full injury report is available here.
