continues to battle a high ankle sprain.
The Lions listed Johnson as questionable on Friday’s injury report and view
him as a game-time decision to play against Atlanta, according to the team’s
Johnson has missed the last two games because of the injury and was limited in
practice all week.

(ankle) and listed running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and tight end Brandon
Pettigrew (foot) as doubtful against the Falcons.
