The Detroit Lions receiver missed Monday's post-bye practice, but said Wednesday his ankle is feeling better and he expects to play in Green Bay on Sunday. He practiced in a limited capacity.
Johnson said the ankle injury isn't as severe as the one that kept him out multiple games in 2014 and relegated him to decoy in several others.
Here's the rest of Wednesday's injury news:
- Eddie Lacy was limited by a groin injury, but coach Mike McCarthy said he thinks the running back "will be full go" for Sunday's game. McCarthy also noted that James Starks has become the team's No. 1 running back but they'll continue to go with a dual attack on the ground. Linebacker Clay Matthews (ankle/back), guard T.J. Lang (back), CB Sam Shields (shoulder) and wideout Ty Montgomery (ankle) were each limited.
- Josh McCown was limited in practice as he continues to heal from a rib injury that kept him out of Thursday night's loss to the Bengals, according to coach Mike Pettine. The veteran quarterback told the media he's feeling better and still hopes he can play Sunday against San Francisco. Cornerback Joe Haden remains in the league's concussion protocol.
