The Detroit Lions have released their list of inactives for today’s game against the Cleveland Browns. Good news Calvin Johnson fantasy football owners, the NFL’s best receiver will be playing today.

The Lions waited until after pregame warm ups to make the final decision and Johnson stayed on the field longer than his teammates to get stretched out but he is apparently well enough to play.

Jim Schwartz was asked about using Calvin as a decoy in last week’s game against the Packers, to which he explained that a player has to be a real option and be able to take a hit to be on the field. With that in mind, we can reasonably expect that Calvin will be a real part of the offense today.

Nate Burleson (forearm), Theo Riddick (concussion) and Tony Scheffler (concussion) were ruled out of today’s game on the final injury report released on Friday afternoon.

Also inactive today are Kellen Moore, Leroy Harris, Jason Fox and Jonte Green.
