Lions WR Calvin Johnson active Week 10 vs. Packers

Sunday November 15th, 2015

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is officially active Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers.

Earlier in the week, Johnson said that he was confident he would be ready to return from an ankle injury that he suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 1. 

Johnson was listed as questionable after he missed practice on Friday, despite having two weeks to recover.

Johnson missed three games and portions of two games with an ankle sprain last season.

Through eight games, Johnson has led the Lions with 659 receiving yards on 48 receptions. He is also tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions (3).

Peyton Manning has rib cage injury, listed as probable

Johnson has topped the 1000-yard receiving mark each of the last five seasons. Last season, he tallied 1077 yards, his lowest total since 2009.
