Calvin Johnson, Lawson miss Lions practice
Allen Park — Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and cornerback Nevin Lawson (concussion) were among the players who missed Lions practice Wednesday.
Johnson played through his injury against the Packers, and if he can return to practice Thursday or Friday, he’ll likely be available for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders at Ford Field (1 p.m., FOX).
Lawson’s status is unclear, too, as he’ll have to pass the NFL’s concussion protocol before returning to the field. He suffered the brain injury late in the fourth quarter last Sunday.
In addition to Johnson and Lawson, defensive end Jason Jones (not injury-related), defensive tackle Gabe Wright (ankle), and safety Don Carey (back) were out. Wright was wearing a walking boot on his right leg after the last game.
Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (toe), safety Glover Quin (ankle), running back Joique Bell (shoulder) and punter Sam Martin (back) were limited.
