Lions RB Reggie Bush sat out of practice on Thursday. WR Calvin Johnson practiced for the second straight day, and did "much more," per Twentyman.

Fantasy Impact: 

Midweek downgrades are usually a bad sign, but we’ll see if Bush is able to practice on Friday before making any assumptions about his availability in a great matchup against the Falcons. If he can’t play Theo Riddick would assume the pass-catching role in the Lions backfield and would be a Sneaky Start given the matchup. As for Johnson, it looks like he's a game-time call, which means owners will need to set their rosters at around 8:30-9:00 a.m. ET for a 9:30 a.m. kickoff in London on Sunday morning.
