News: Johnson caught two passes for 27 yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Jaguars. Impact: Johnson will likely finish his preseason with just the two receptions after being a healthy scratch for the first two games. He underwent a pair of minor procedures on his knee and finger back in January, but is all set to enter the season at full health. The Lions accomplished their main preseason goal with Johnson, which was merely to ensure that he got a tiny bit of work while staying healthy.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson is on track to play Friday against the Jaguars, the Detroit Free Press reports. Impact: Johnson has been a healthy scratch for the Lions' first two preseason contests, as the team is of no mind to expose the star wideout to unnecessary injury risk, but it looks as though he'll see some tune-up snaps with the first-team offense on Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson did not play in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders, NFL on ESPN reports. Impact: Johnson's preseason workload is being carefully managed after he underwent finger and knee surgeries at the beginning of the offseason. Now more than seven months removed from those procedures, Johnson seems to be just fine, and is expected to be a full go for Week 1. It's quite possible that he'd be rested this way even if he wasn't bouncing back from an injury-plagued season.(RotoWire, )
