Lions WR Johnson on sideline with knee problems

Lions WR Calvin Johnson made the start Sunday against the Steelers, but he doesn’t appear to be 100 percent healthy. Johnson, who was limited during the week due to a thigh injury, went to the sideline midway through the second quarter to be checked on by team trainers.

After an incomplete pass on the Lions’ second drive of the game, Johnson immediately left the field for the trainers’ table, where his right knee was then examined. After several minutes, Johnson was up on his feet and appeared to be testing the injury. He did not take the field for the team’s next possession.

NFL Network’s Kara Henderson reports from Detroit that Johnson is questionable to return.
