Calvin Johnson returned to practice for the Detroit Lions on Thursday, a day after sitting out because of a foot injury. Johnson's injury was not considered serious and coach Jim Schwartz never commented on Johnson's status for Sunday's game with the San Francisco 49ers.
Fantasy Impact: This is the news fantasy owners were expecting to hear, so there is no need to scramble for a replacement. Johnson is a must-start in all fantasy leagues, even though the 49ers defense could pose a challenge to the Detroit offense. There is no reason to think, however, that Matthew Stafford, will stop looking Johnson's way.
