Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush inactive today

As expected, the Lions will be without two key offensive playmakers for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and running back Reggie Bush (ankle) have been ruled inactive for Sunday's game. This puts receiver Golden Tate into a sure-fire No. 1 receiver role with Joique Bell getting the majority of the carries in the backfield.

This is a role reversal as Bell was forced to sit out last week due to a concussion, with Bush getting all of the carries. Backup running back Theo Riddick could act as a receiving back with Bush out, too.
