Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) – Calvin Johnson was a full participant in the
Detroit Lions’ first official practice after their bye week on Wednesday,
putting the star wide receiver on track to return to the field for this
weekend’s game against Miami.
Johnson has been held out of the Lions’ last three games due to a nagging high
ankle sprain that also limited his production in early-season contests against
the New York Jets and Buffalo. The All-Pro wideout has not played since
Detroit’s 17-14 loss to the Bills on Oct. 5.
The prognosis also appears good for running back Reggie Bush, who took part in
Wednesday’s entire session as well. The ex-Dolphin missed two of Detroit’s
final three games prior to its bye due to an ankle injury.
