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 C Frank Ragnow left Friday night's preseason game against the Bills with a worrisome-looking leg injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, however, reports that Ragnow sustained only a minor ankle sprain. With 2 weeks until the season begins, this doesn't seem like an issue that should alter fantasy football outlooks for others on the Detroit offense. Treat RB Kerryon Johnson and/or QB Matthew Stafford as you were planning.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson said he's back to 100% after a November knee injury ended his rookie campaign. He didn't need surgery and will get in a full offseason of work. Johnson will need to hold off RB C.J. Anderson for work but has breakout potential in new OC Darrell Bevell's run-focused offense.

Injury Predictor

Johnson hurt his right shoulder late in his final Auburn season but returned for the SEC Championship game the following week. It's worth mentioning here because Johnson had the same shoulder repaired in January 2016. The Lions clearly weren't concerned when they traded up to draft Johnson in Round 2. He also lost a 2016 game to a right ankle sprain in 2016 and 2 more to a right hamstring injury in September 2017. Johnson might have trouble grabbing true primary work right away, but Lions coaches have said they see 3-down potential in him.
