Stafford, Johnson questionable

Injuries continue to be an issue for the Lions.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford, who didn’t practice Thursday and Friday, is listed in Friday’s injury report as questionable for Sunday’s game at Green Bay. Stafford, who injured his knee in the game at Chicago, also sat out Sunday’s loss to Pittsburgh. Daunte Culpepper will get his second straight start.

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who injured his knee early in the Steelers’ game, also did not practice on Friday. He’s also listed as questionable.

 Stafford and Johnson were two of seven injured Lions who didn’t practice on Friday. The others are: DT Sammie Hill (ankle), DE Jason Hunter, DT Grady Jackson (knee), S Ko Simpson and DE Dewayne White. Hill, Hunter and Simpson are doubtful for Sunday.

 LB Jordon Dizon (foot), FB Jerome Felton (shoulder), TE Casey FitzSimmons (thigh), running back Maurice Morris and LB Ernie Sims (shoulder) practiced on Friday in a limited capacity.  Felton, FitzSimmons, Morris and White are questionable for Sunday. Dizon, Jackson and Sims are probable.

 That’s a heck of a long list. The Lions’ have a bye week next week which should help some of these guys get healthy.
