Detroit Lions All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson has not practiced all week and if he does play in this week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars he could be limited to third-down, reports ProFootballWeekly.

Johnson is listed as questionable with a recurring knee injury and will be a game-time decision to play. Johnson has only one touchdown catch this season and has six catches for 80 yards after over the past two games.

"He’s done it before (play on no practice)," Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said. "He obviously knows our offense and his health is the more important thing."

Overall, Johnson has 41 catches and 638 yards this season.
