Calvin Johnson on knee: don't want to mess it up more - [Full Article]

While it appears there's a good chance Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will start in Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams, the odds of receiver Calvin Johnson joining the action could be diminishing.

Johnson, who is hobbled by a sore knee, practiced Thursday but didn't do as much today.

"Just trying not to overwork it. I didn't want to mess it up more than it is,'' Johnson said after today's practice.
As to whether he might play against the Rams, Johnson added, "It's a game-time decision.''

"Both are progressing and both will be game-time decisions,'' Lions coach Jim Schwartz said of Stafford and Johnson. "I don't think any of them are 100 percent yet, but they're getting closer.''
