According to NFL’s.com Ian Rapoport, Johnson has been frustrated with his use as a decoy over the last two games.
The All-Pro receiver has 19 receptions for 329 yards and two touchdowns this season, including only three catches for 19 yards in the past two weeks, a win against the New York Jets and a loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said that he is considering sitting Johnson for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. After playing Minnesota, Detroit has two NFC South opponents, the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons, on the schedule before the team's bye in Week 9.
