Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, will start and play today against the Jets at MetLife Stadium, per multiple reports. Johnson was able to practice on a limited basis on Friday. He injured his right ankle in the win over the Packers last Sunday.
Wide receiver Ryan Broyles is active for the first time this season with the absence of tight end Joe Fauria who injured his ankle in a freak fall on Wednesday night.
Also, as expected, safety James Ihedigbo will play his first game this season. The veteran safety, who is coming off a neck injury, will start alongside Glover Quin.
Garrett Reynolds will start at right tackle for the third straight game. But expect to see rookie Cornelius Lucas rotate in throughout the game.
No surprises among the other inactives: LB Travis Lewis, CB Cassius Vaughn, DE Larry Webster, RT LaAdrian Waddle, QB Kellen Moore and safety Don Carey.
