ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- After missing two days of practice and then saying Thursday he anticipated playing Sunday against Pittsburgh, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report Friday.

Johnson
Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (ankle), who returned to practice Friday on a limited basis, is officially listed as questionable but had not practiced for almost two weeks before Friday. Also listed as questionable is right tackle Corey Hilliard (knee).

Cornerback Bill Bentley (knee), who hasn't practiced all week, is listed as doubtful along with receiver Nate Burleson (forearm), who is still recovering from his injury.

The only player ruled out for the Lions is running back Montell Owens, who hasn't practiced all week.

Interesting to note, especially since he likely would have faced rookie right tackle LaAdrian Waddle, but linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) is officially doubtful for Pittsburgh on Sunday. Also, defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) is questionable for the Steelers.
