Lions official injury report

The Detroit Lions have listed running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) as out for Week 15.

Fantasy Impact:

Following a surprising Thanksgiving blowup against the Bears, LeGarrette Blount, who has been filling in for Johnson, hasn't done much the last two weeks. The Lions offense is a huge mess and Buffalo's defense is fairly stout, rendering the veteran bruiser a low-end RB4 unless he manages to fall across the goal line.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 15. Chris Ivory (shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 15. The Lions run defense is much improved so neither player is a particularly enticing option.
