Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) expected to miss some time

Kerryon Johnson met with Detroit Lions doctors Monday, but otherwise coach Matt Patricia had little update about the right knee injury his running back suffered in a 42-30 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted Monday night Johnson "is expected to miss 'some time' with a knee injury" and is week to week. Schefter does not expect Johnson to play Sunday against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said not much is known by Patricia at the moment but he hopes to have some clarity Tuesday. He said Johnson told him he was fine in a brief conversation. Johnson wore a knee brace after leaving the game and rode a stationary bike, but never returned. Ty Johnson will be a huge pickup this week on the wire with a nice matchup against the Giants. McKissic will remain in the passing down role. Hopefully we get more of a timeline, perhaps Tuesday, but for now it looks like Ty Johnson will get the start Week 8 at least.
