Detroit Lions

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew told reporters Wednesday that Johnson's knee surgery was a relatively minor arthroscopic procedure, and that he also underwent a minor surgery on a finger.

Johnson missed two games last season because of his knee ailment. He finished with 1,492 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns, earning a spot on The Associated Press NFL All-Pro team for a third straight year. Johnson pulled out of the Pro Bowl because of his injuries and was replaced by Chicago's Alshon Jeffery.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been held out of the season finale. Kevin Ogletree is in the starting lineup Sunday at Minnesota for Johnson, who has been bothered by a knee injury for much of the season.

Despite missing two games this season, Johnson finished with 84 receptions, 1,492 yards and 12 touchdowns. Not too bad.

Johnson is active against the New York Giants.

Johnson was listed as questionable for Sunday's game because of an injured right knee.

Johnson had six receptions for 101 yards and a TD on Thursday.

He's averaged 131.7 yards and scored three TDs in the last three games.

Johnson caught seven passes for 115 yards against the Bucs on Sunday.

Johnson has reached at least 115 receiving yards six times in 10 games this season.

Johnson had six catches for 179 yards and two more touchdowns in Sunday's 37-27 loss at Pittsburgh.

Johnson has proven nearly unstoppable of late, recording a ridiculous 746 yards and seven scores in his last four games. While he'll square off against Darrelle Revis in Week 12, Johnson is pretty much matchup-proof at this point.

Johnson had six receptions for 83 yards and two TDs, including the winner, Sunday versus Chicago.

Johnson has recorded five of his nine TDs in the last four games.

Johnson put together one of the best-ever performances by a receiver, catching 14 passes for 329 yards and a TD in Sunday's win over Dallas. The 329 yards are second in NFL history only to Flipper Anderson's 336.

Johnson is among the league leaders in all major receiving categories, including his NFL-best 821 yards.

Johnson finished with 155 and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati.

Johnson has caught a TD pass in four of his last five games.

Johnson returned after missing last week's game with a right knee injury but was less than 100 percent.

The man they call "Megatron" had three catches for 25 yards but was slower than normal coming off the line and didn't cut with his usual precision and power. Still, his presence put the Browns' defense on edge and enabled Detroit's other receivers to get open.
