Chiefs Vs. Lions: Sounds Like Calvin Johnson Will Play

If the Kansas City Chiefs were hoping for a miracle with WR Calvin Johnson's injury, they're not going to get it. Johnson, who is suffering from an ankle injury, missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but it appears he's going to play.

ESPN's Josina Anderson, who is covering the Chiefs and Lions game in Detroit, reports that Johnson is likely to play. He was on the field warming up and told Anderson that he feels "good to go" for today's game.

That puts the pressure on CB Brandon Flowers and CB Brandon Carr, along with the rest of the Chiefs secondary to shut him down. As Chiefs coach Todd Haley said,  Johnson is one of the premier receivers in the league and he can hurt the Chiefs secondary. ESPN's Josina Anderson said the Lions receivers are ready to exploit the absence of S Eric Berry.

We'll be seeing inactives for all the games coming up at 10:30 a.m. (Arrowhead Time).
