Both Stafford and Calvin Johnson sit out practice for Lions on Tuesday

Posted:

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions practiced without quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

The injured players watched the workouts Tuesday that were open to the media.

Stafford's left shoulder was dislocated in Sunday's 38-37 win against Cleveland. He made the game-winning throw with his right arm after getting hit on the previous play. Johnson has hand and knee injuries.

They don't have much time to get healthy for the next game. Detroit hosts the Green Bay Packers in its annual Thanksgiving game.

Stafford set an NFL rookie passing record with 422 yards against the Browns and became the youngest player to throw five touchdowns in a game. Johnson had a career-best 161 yards receiving and a 75-yard TD.
