Allen Park, MI (SportsNetwork.com) – Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin
Johnson was held out of practice on Thursday, due to a nagging knee/ankle
issue.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said that a decision on whether or not the
club’s leading receiver will suit up in Sunday’s season finale against
Minnesota may not come until shortly before game time.

Johnson had been listed as questionable for last week’s 23-20 overtime loss
against the New York Giants. He played limited minutes in the contest,
recording just three catches for 43 yards.

Also sitting out the session were tackle LaAdrian Waddle (ankle), cornerbacks
Bill Bentley (concussion) and Chris Houston (toe), linebacker DeAndre Levy
(foot), safety Johnson Wendling (ankle) and guard/center Dylan Gandy.
