Lions WR Calvin Johnson's absence in Saturday's preseason game is not believed to be injury related. Detroit has given its star wideout a lot of veteran rest in camp, including two off days in the past week, plus the regularly scheduled off day Sunday.

He played only once in the preseason last year -- finishing with three catches against the Jets -- and went on to rank third in the league in receiving. So this isn't new territory for him, and seems like the sensible play.
