Lions RB Ty Johnson was knocked out of Sunday's game in Chicago with a concussion. His absence leaves Detroit with RBs J.D. McKissic and Paul Perkins.

Lions RB Tra Carson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Raiders. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday's practice. Carson surprisingly led Detroit with 12 carries last week, so his absence would be a boost for RB Ty Johnson.

The Lions have activated RB Paul Perkins from the practice squad. He was signed in mid-September and waived a month later before landing on Detroit's practice squad. Perkins sports a career 3.6 yards-per-carry average and figures to slot in as the #3 RB behind Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic. It's excellent news for Johnson if this is the only move the Lions make at RB.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson will be placed on IR after undergoing a procedure on his injured knee, HC Matt Patricia announced on Tuesday. The team hopes to get Johnson back this season, but he's out until at least Week 16. So he can be dropped in redraft leagues. We'll see if Detroit adds anything to its backfield, but for now it'll be Ty Johnson as the lead back and J.D. McKissic as the change-of-pace. Johnson has a shot at RB2 value the rest of the way and is a priority add off waiver wires this week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lions RB Kerryon Johnson is expected to miss "some time" with his knee injury. "For now, Johnson will be called week to week," Schefter adds. That's the only update we've gotten on Johnson today, so we're still somewhat in the dark here. We can at least say that Johnson will miss Sunday's game against the Giants. That'll leave Ty Johnson as Detroit's lead back and J.D. McKissic as the #2.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Vikings and is questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one. Johnson's absence leaves Detroit with RBs Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic.

The Lions have released RB C.J. Anderson and signed RB Paul Perkins. Anderson played 29% of Detroit's offensive snaps and handled 11 carries in Week 1. But he dipped to a 20% snap rate and 5 carries in Week 2. He averaged an ugly 2.7 yards on his 16 attempts. Perkins hasn't tallied a regular-season touch since 2017 and sports a career 3.6 yards-per-attempt average. He shouldn't be a big factor in this backfield. We'd consider this move good news for RB Kerryon Johnson, although it looks like Detroit wants to get RB Ty Johnson involved, too.
