ALLEN PARK — Five starters were missing from Lions’ practice today (Friday).
Starters out were: WR Calvin Johnson (knee), CB Bill Bentley (concussion), LB DeAndre Levy (foot), T LaAdrian Waddle (ankle) and S Louis Delmas (knee).

Johnson said on Thursday he wants to play on Sunday against the Vikings at Minnesota. Levy missed practice all last week yet played on Sunday in the loss to the Giants.

Also out today was DE Israel Idonije (knee).

Three returned who were out on Thursday: CB Chris Houston (toe/illness), S John Wendling (ankle) and G Dylan Gandy (illness).

It was the Lions’ final practice for this season. Nothing is on the line on Sunday except for Detroit’s chance to finish at 8-8. 

The Vikings (4-10-1) will be fired up as they play their final game at the Metrodome.
