BAGSHOT, England (AP) — Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is still a doubt for Detroit’s game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday in London.
Johnson has missed the last two games, both wins, for the Lions (5-2) with a right ankle injury. He made the trip to England, but said Thursday there was still no decision on whether he would play this weekend.
Johnson says “it gets better and better. Like, right now it’s getting better on a daily basis.”
Johnson, known as Megatron, is one of the most popular players in the NFL. But with a bye week coming up, Johnson could sit out Sunday’s game and get an extra week of recovery before the Lions play the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 9.
