12:18 PM ET 11.02 | Calvin Johnson didn't practice at all this week for the Lions, missing all three days of tune-up for the Lions Week 9 game agains the Jaguars. Though a player missing a full of practice generally doesn't play the following Sunday, there aren't many concerns surrounding Johnson. He has attributed his new practice schedule to an effort to keep the soreness away from his knee, which has kept him less than 100 percent this season. Johnson has only one receiving touchdown on the season.

Sore knees and a circus atmosphere around the team; not a recipe for success.

Disappointing team to watch this year. Stafford might need those eyes checked.

No circus atmosphere I'm afraid, and CJ is having a similar year stat-wise as he did in 2011, with the exception he's not getting the TD catches.

The amount of coverage he gets (the last offensive snap against Seattle, for example, looked liked a group of fanbois were running to get his autograph) has actually helped the other receivers shine.
