Lions' Calvin Johnson will play at Cleveland
By Michael Rothstein
CLEVELAND -- Ending the biggest suspense in Detroit this week, wide receiver Calvin Johnson is active and will play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
He was the largest question among the Lions players, but he took part in warmups, including receiver drills, and looked fine making his cuts and moving through ladders. He got an extensive stretch before the end of workouts, but he'll be giving it a shot Sunday.
Detroit's inactives are wide receiver Nate Burleson, quarterback Kellen Moore, cornerback Jonte Green, running back Theo Riddick, guard Leroy Harris, tackle Jason Fox and tight end Tony Scheffler.
Running back Mikel Leshoure is active for the second time this season.
