Detroit Lions Send Kerryon Johnson To IR


The Detroit Lions have placed starting RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) to the IR, per Tim Twentyman. The team says he may return this season but with the earliest being week 16 it’s doubtful.

Unless the Lions make a move for another running back, rookie Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic will act as the 1-2 punch out of the backfield.
