Calvin Johnson active for Thanksgiving Day


Have no fear, Calvin Johnson will take the field for the Detroit Lions looking to feast on the Green Bay Packers.

Johnson has been dealing with a knee injury but never seemed  in danger of missing Thanksgiving’s game even with little to no practice this week.

In Johnson’s last three games against the Packers, Johnson has lit up the stat sheet totaling 26 catches, 505 yards and two touchdowns. He will be looking for more of the same while Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers will try to stop him again.

The Lions have WR Michael Spurlock, QB Kellen Moore, RB Mikel Leshoure, G Leroy Harris, G Rodney Austin and T Corey Hilliard listed as inactive.
