Lions WR Johnson misses practice again

The SportsXchange

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson missed his second straight day of practice Thursday to help give his ailing knee some rest.

The seventh-year standout receiver has 53 catches for 904 yards and nine touchdowns this season. He was listed on Wednesday's injury report with a knee injury.

Johnson had six catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns last Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

The Lions also do not plan to play wide receiver Nate Burleson on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers even though he has been practicing this week and feels recovered from his broken arm, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. Burleson has not played since breaking his arm after Week 3.
