Lions at Jaguars: Calvin Johnson, others inactive for Friday's game

The Detroit Lions will not have their star receiver Calvin Johnson in the lineup for their Friday night matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Detroit Lions will be without their No. 1 receiver Calvin Johnson for their "dress rehearsal" game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. DeAndre Levy, who missed a few practices earlier in the week, will also be inactive vs. the Jags. Most of the other inactives have been sidelined throughout the entirety of the preseason, so their aren't many surprises tonight. Larry Warford and Caraun Reid both suffered the same ankle injury versus the Redskins...

Brice Butler: Being Raiders top preseason receiver "doesn't really matter much" come regular season

Arguably the most intriguing wide receiver the Raiders have these days is Brice Butler. He is that receiver who has shown flashes of potential in the season and stands out in the preseason, but we cant't get a handle on exactly what kind of player he is going to be or how much playing time he will receive in the offense. This former seventh round pick out of San Diego State came on strong in last year's training camp and preseason. It was his second training camp and he came prepared after having trained with the likes of Calvin Johnson, AJ Green, and Demaryius Thomas in the...

What the Lions should expect from a third receiver

Even after the acquisition of Golden Tate last season, the Detroit Lions still find themselves missing something in the passing game. With all the options at their disposal, do we know what kind of production to expect from a third pass-catcher? For years, it seemed like all the Detroit Lions had in the passing game was Calvin Johnson. A cycle of draft picks and free-agent stopgaps attempted to fill the hole, yet no one seemed able to take full advantage of opposing defenses that spent most of their resources stopping one man. In fact, before last season, the most receiving yards a player...

Not even 'Earth' can contain Detroit Lions' Calvin Johnson

Johnson made three highlight-reel catches in training camp Friday, one against cornerback Darius Slay, who jokingly suggest this week that his nickname should be 'Earth' since there's no receiver on the planet he can't cover.

Lions training camp: Notes from Day 1

In this edition of Detroit Lions training camp notes: Stephen Tulloch, Calvin Johnson, Eric Ebron, Ameer Abdullah, Manny Ramirez and much more. The Detroit Lions opened training camp with an afternoon practice on Monday, and team owner Martha Ford was in attendance. Five players were sidelined from Monday's practice. Stephen Tulloch, who is coming back from a torn ACL, was not on the list of injured players: By the way, Stephen Tulloch looked totally healthy -- and fast -- today. Good sign for the Lions. — Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) August 3, 2015 Calvin Johnson...
