ESPN - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson sprained his knee Sunday but doesn't need surgery and will be week-to-week, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Related players: Theo Riddick, LeGarrette Blount, Zach Zenner

Fantasy Impact:

Although they haven't ruled him out, Johnson will likely have a tough time being ready for a short week, Thanksgiving Day game on Thursday. Johnson has 103 carries for 554 yards and two touchdowns along with 30 catches for 203 yards and a touchdown. Prior to the injury, Johnson had 15 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown along with two catches for 10 yards against the Panthers. Riddick and Blount will most likely handle a majority of the RB duties in Week 12.

Scouting Report

Week 11 vs. Carolina Panthers

Detroit was behind the entire game last week at Chicago, which limited the ground attack. While LeGarrette Blount received two attempts near the goal line, he was unable to punch it in, which Kerryon Johnson was able to do on third down. Blount finished with six carries for four yards and has rushed for a total of just 15 yards the past three weeks. Johnson is the team’s clear No. 1 RB and, now that Theo Riddick is healthy, Blount should not be taking up a roster spot.
