Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was "no worse for wear" after the victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, coach Jim Schwartz said on Monday. Johnson had missed practice in the days leading up to the game because of a knee injury but finished with 129 yards on seven catches.
Schwartz said the team on Sunday tried to rest Johnson after he ran long routes and kept him out late in the game when Detroit was running the ball. Johnson played on 60 of Detroit's 72 offensive snaps. The Lions face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10.
Fantasy Impact: Johnson has not missed any action and should eventually be 100 percent for the Lions. The biggest complaint among fantasy owners is that he only has one touchdown but it's hard to be too upset about 129 yards.
Johnson remains the top weapon in Detroit's offense and will keep his spot near the top of the fantasy receiver rankings as long as he remains healthy.
