Lions | Calvin Johnson to sit out preseason game

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) will not play in the team's second preseason game against the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Aug. 15, due to a bruised knee. Johnson caught three passes in the team's first preseason game last week. WR Patrick Edwards will start in Johnson's place.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions are most likely just being extremely cautious with their star receiver. Expect him to be fine. Draft Calvin Johnson as the No. 1 wideout off the board in the middle to late part of the first round.
