The early dispatches from Lions practice Friday suggest wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) is at least participating on a limited basis.

According to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com, Johnson “(did) a little more” in the portion of practice open to media than he did on Thursday.

Also, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports Johnson wasn’t wearing a knee brace and went through a variety of drills, including some cutting.

Johnson missed the Lions’ Week Five loss at Green Bay with the injury. The Lions play at Cleveland on Sunday, and official word on whether he’s playing may not come until gameday morning.
