Lions WR Calvin Johnson active against Giants

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is active against the

New York Giants.

Johnson was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game because of

an injured right knee.

Lions cornerback Darius Slay is active, just two weeks after he

had surgery on his right knee. Detroit cornerback Chris Houston is

inactive for a second straight game because of a toe injury. The

Lions previously ruled out tight end Brandon Pettigrew because of

an injured left ankle.

Giants guard David Diehl is inactive with a knee injury. Rookie

Brandon Mosley is making his first start in Diehl’s place.

New York is starting wide receiver Rueben Randle in place of

Victor Cruz, who will miss the rest of the season after having

surgery Thursday on his left knee.
