Lions WR Johnson likely out again

Allen Park, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Detroit Lions star Calvin Johnson is unlikely to play Sunday against New Orleans as he continues to deal with an ankle injury.

The Pro Bowl wide receiver missed practice all week after sitting out Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said it would take a "miracle" for Johnson to play with the high ankle sprain, according to the team's official website.

The wideout is officially listed as questionable on the injury report, while tight end Eric Ebron and running back Theo Riddick are doubtful with hamstring injuries.

Running back Reggie Bush, who sat Sunday with an ankle injury, is likely to play, as are defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (toe) and wide receiver Jeremy Ross (ankle). Tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) and linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) have been ruled out.
