The Lions will have All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson today, as well as backup running back Joique Bell. The other notable players who they’ll have who are battling injuries are starting cornerbacks Rasheen Mathis and Chris Houston. Don’t expect to see either of those players covering Bengals receiver A.J. Green 1-on-1 much, if any throughout today’s contest.

Meanwhile, the Bengals will have all of their regular starters active today. Cornerback Terence Newman was the only starter with a chance to miss today, and with him starting, that will only help the Bengals slow down one of the league’s best passing offenses.

He, Leon Hall and Adam Jones will be relied on to keep Calvin Johnson in check.
