|Jan. 31, 2016 1:23 PM PT2:23 PM MT3:23 PM CT4:23 PM ET21:23 GMT5:23 AM 北京时间2:23 PM MST4:23 PM EST3:23 PM CT1:23 UAE (+1)16:23 ET19:23 - The Lions are still giving Johnson time to ponder his future. The team issued a statement Sunday, saying it stands by its previous statement that supported Johnson, after ESPN reported that the superstar receiver told family, friends and Lions coach Jim Caldwell that he is retiring. ESPN did not name its sources.
Analysis: Johnson declined to say last season if he would restructure his contract, which calls for him to count $24 million against the salary cap in 2016. If the 30-year chooses to retire, he will walk away from the game despite having the physical ability to play more, just as Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders did. Sanders was 30 in 1998, his 10th and final season with the Lions.

Analysis: The Lions routinely limit Johnson's snaps during practice, so it doesn't appear he's in any danger of sitting out this week.
|Dec. 4, 2015 9:58 PM PT10:58 PM MT11:58 PM CT12:58 AM ET5:58 GMT1:58 PM 北京时间10:58 PM MST12:58 AM EST11:58 PM CT9:58 UAE0:58 ET3:58 - Johnson had a nice touchdown grab Thursday night, but he only finished with three catches for 44 yards against the Packers.

|Oct. 5, 2015 8:21 PM PT9:21 PM MT10:21 PM CT11:21 PM ET3:21 GMT11:21 AM 北京时间8:21 PM MST10:21 PM EST10:21 PM CT7:21 UAE (+1)23:21 ET2:21 - Johnson had seven catches for 56 yards on Monday.
Analysis: Johnson was targeted 11 times against physical defense by Cary Williams, though this effort will be remembered for his costly fumble near the goal line in the closing minutes as he cost fantasy owners a much-needed TD reception.
|Sep. 21, 2015 1:44 PM PT2:44 PM MT3:44 PM CT4:44 PM ET20:44 GMT4:44 AM 北京时间1:44 PM MST3:44 PM EST3:44 PM CT0:44 UAE (+1)16:44 ET19:44 - Johnson turned in a performance worthy of the Megatron nickname Sunday, grabbing 10 of his 17 targets for 83 yards and a score.

|Aug. 29, 2015 11:55 AM PT12:55 PM MT1:55 PM CT2:55 PM ET18:55 GMT2:55 AM 北京时间11:55 AM MST1:55 PM EST1:55 PM CT22:55 UAE14:55 ET17:55 - Johnson sat out Friday.

Johnson, who caught 71 passes for 1,077 yards and eight touchdowns last season despite missing three games, did not play in the team's first two preseason games. He has said he would welcome the chance to play this weekend, but Caldwell and his staff seem intent on keeping Johnson under wraps until the regular season starts Sept. 13 at San Diego.
Analysis: Johnson, who turns 30 next month, has little to prove in exhibition games, and the Lions always do what they can to protect him from wear and tear. Caldwell said there are no injury concerns about Johnson right now. Johnson's potential absence would give the Lions more time to assess their group of receivers before cutting down the roster. Johnson and Golden Tate are obviously the top two receivers on the team, but Detroit has several more who will see time Friday.
