Calvin Johnson is inactive against Packers

Even with the questionable tag placed upon him, it was assumed Lions receiver Calvin Johnson would suit up against the Green Bay Packers.

That won't happen as the elite receiver has been announced as inactive. Johnson has a knee injury.

With Johnson out of the lineup, the Lions will go with a receiver tandem of Ryan Broyles and Kris Durham.
