Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is scheduled to make his preseason debut Friday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to coach Jim Caldwell.
Caldwell also made it clear plans could change, depending on what happens the reset of the week.
"We plan to get him some work this week," Caldwell said. "That's (Monday) that I'm telling you that. Toward the end of the week, something adjusts, or we have to adjust here and there, and it could be that with a number of different guys, but we plan to get him some work this week."
The team has been cautious with Johnson this offseason, regularly resting him during practice, even though he's fully recovered from offseason surgeries on his knee and finger. Caldwell has chalked the routine up to "prudence," the story says.
