Lions | Ty Johnson clears protocol (Sat Nov 16, 12:55 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson on Saturday, Nov. 16, officially cleared the concussion protocol and has been removed from the team's Week 11 injury report.

Our View: Johnson should be the lead ball-carrier for the Lions as they play the Cowboys in Week 11. In this tough matchup, and with his lack of production so far as the starter, Johnson is just a deep flex play for Fantasy GMs. J.D. McKissic will get work as the team's pass-catching back.

Lions | Ty Johnson listed as questionable (Fri Nov 15, 08:13 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 15, but is listed as questionable for the game.

Lions | Week 11 injury report for Detroit (Fri Nov 15, 04:12 PM) - Detroit Lions DT Da'Shawn Hand (ankle), QB Matthew Stafford (hip, back) and OT Ricky Wagner (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys. DT Damon Harrison (groin, rest), P Sam Martin (abdomen), DE Romeo Okwara (groin) and DB Tracy Walker (knee) were limited in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and are listed as questionable. RB Ty Johnson (concussion) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and is also listed as questionable. WR Danny Amendola (hand), DT John Atkins (wrist), DT Mike Daniels (foot), S Will Harris (quad), S Miles Killebrew (concussion), DT A'Shawn Robinson (ankle, thumb) and C Darius Slay (neck) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Our View: Wagner being out will hurt a Lions offense already without its starting quarterback against one of the best pass rush units in the league.

Lions | Ty Johnson listed as limited (Thu Nov 14, 05:06 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 14.

Our View: JD McKissic's sleeper appeal takes a hit with this news, although McKissic still has a pulse in PPR leagues.

Lions | Ty Johnson sits out Wednesday (Wed Nov 13, 04:32 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Ty Johnson (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Our View: The Lions are awfully thin at the running back position. Fantasy GMs in super deep leagues might be considering a Lions back as a 'what the heck' flex but that's about it.
