Calvin Johnson, Jordy Nelson and Ryan Tannehill are active in Week 9

Shutdown Corner

Pro Bowl wide receiver Calvin Johnson is active and will play for the Detroit Lions in Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. A left knee injury had Johnson listed as "questionable" on the team's injury report, but he will go after testing the leg during pregame warmups.

Johnson leads the Lions with 41 receptions for 638 yards this season, but has one touchdown after scoring 16 times in 2011. Johnson may be relegated to a "passing situations only" role, which would be a dramatic departure from how he's been used in the Lions' offense. Entering Sunday's action, Johnson had played in 97.33 percent of Detroit's offensive snaps, a percentage that ranked second among NFL wide receivers.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson is active and listed as a starter today after missing last Sunday's win over the Jaguars with a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) is active and starting against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.
