Lions receiver Calvin Johnson returned to practice Thursday and was wearing a right knee brace, according to a report from the Detroit Free Press.
Johnson missed last week's game against the Packers, to which Detroit lost 22-9. Johnson is an integral part of Detroit's offense. Without him, defenses can key on running back Reggie Bush without much worry about the rest of the receiving group.
The Lions will hope Johnson is able to play, considering the Browns have one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL in Joe Haden. At this point, Johnson looks like a game-time decision.
