Star WR Calvin Johnson Is Active For Lions Meeting With Giants
DETROIT (CBSNewYork/AP) — Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson is active against the New York Giants.
Johnson was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game because of an injured right knee.
Lions cornerback Darius Slay is active, just two weeks after he had surgery on his right knee. Detroit cornerback Chris Houston is inactive for a second straight game because of a toe injury. The Lions previously ruled out tight end Brandon Pettigrew because of an injured left ankle.
Giants guard David Diehl is inactive with a knee injury. Rookie Brandon Mosley is making his first start in Diehl’s place.
New York is starting wide receiver Rueben Randle in place of Victor Cruz, who will miss the rest of the season after having surgery Thursday on his left knee.
