Calvin Johnson will play Sunday
Wednesday November 5th, 2014

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson told reporters on Wednesday that he's "almost 100 percent" and that he plans to play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, according to Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free-Press

Johnson has been dealing with an ankle injury, which has kept him out of Detroit's games against the Falcons, Saints and Vikings. He was also limited in the team's previous two games against the Jets and Bills. 

The receiver has caught 22 passes for 348 yards and two touchdowns this season. Johnson, who has been first-team All-Pro the last three seasons, caught 84 passes for 1,492 yards and 12 touchdowns last year.

Both Johnson and injured running back Reggie Bush returned to practice this past week. 

The Lions are 6-2 entering Sunday's game against the 5-3 Dolphins. Detroit, which leads the NFC North, plays at the Cardinals and Patriots following their game against Miami.
