Lions star WR Calvin Johnson out for NFC North showdown against Packers

Detroit Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson is out for their divisional showdown against the Packers.

The team's leading receiver had been sidelined two days last week with a knee injury before participating in practice on a limited basis Friday. He had been listed as questionable.

The Lions are already without Nate Burleson. Johnson has 21 catches for 312 yards and four touchdowns, while Burleson had 19 catches for 239 yards. Detroit's next leading wideout is Kris Durham with five catches for 102 yards.
