Calvin Johnson active for Lions vs. Browns game


Megatron is back in the fold for Matthew Stafford and company.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will be active on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns on the road, according to Ian Rapoport.

Johnson missed last week against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field with a knee injury and the offense suffered in a big way. The Lions were only able to score nine points and fell 22-9 in a tough NFC North contest.

This year, Johnson has been the same beast that he has been most of his NFL career. In four games, the Georgia Tech product has 21 catches for 312 yards and four touchdowns. Last season, Johnson almost became the first wide receiver to ever have 2,000 receiving yards in a campaign, finishing with 1,964 yards.

With Johnson back in the starting lineup, Ryan Broyles can go back to his role as a supporting cast member. Broyles, in his second season out of Oklahoma, has five catches and 61 yards.
