UPDATED: Detroit Lions — Calvin Johnson out with ankle injury

ALLEN PARK — Calvin Johnson sat out of Detroit Lions practice today (Wednesday) with an ankle injury. It was the first practice he’s missed this season.

Johnson finished Sunday’s game, but at one point late in the game he was on the trainer’s table and it looked like they were working on his ankle.

Johnson wouldn’t address the injury in his presser prior to practice. 

Right tackle LaAdrian Waddle (calf) returned to practice, but was limited. Also limited were Joique Bell (knee), Ziggy Ansah (knee), Nick Fairley (biceps) and Montell Owens (hamstring).

 Along with Johnson, Travis Lewis, Don Carey and Cassius Vaughn did not practice.

Calvin Johnson was named the recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award earlier on Wednesday. The award annually goes to a Lions player who exemplifies sportsmanship and has overcome injury and/or adversity to excel on the field.

Last season Johnson battled through knee and finger injuries.
