The Detroit Lions have given Calvin Johnson practices off in the past but Megatron missed two-straight earlier in the week suggesting that he was getting more than his usual maintenance day. He returned to practice on Friday but was limited because of his knee and the Lions listed his status on the final injury report as questionable. By definition, that meant the Lions pegged the odds of Calvin playing at 50-50.

Johnson was out warming up with his teammates today but that didn’t mean the situation was any less clear. WDFN’s Matt Shapard kept an eye on CJ during warmups:

The official inactive list has been released and Calvin Johnson is on it. He will not play today against the Packers.

The rest of the inactive list is not surprising. Also out today are QB Kellen Moore, RB, Mikel Leshoure, WR Nate Burleson, OG Leroy Harris, OT LaAdrian Waddle and CB Jonte Green
