Heading into the 2019 season, the hopes that second-year running back Kerryon Johnson would emerge as a star on the Detroit Lions offense.
Unfortunately, Johnson played in just six games before being placed on Injured Reserve with a knee injury.
Now, Johnson is eligible to come off IR but with just two games remaining on the Lions schedule, coupled with their 3-10-1 record, is it really worth it?
On Wednesday, Lions head coach Matt Patricia spoke to the media and he said that Johnson might play this Sunday.
Matt Patricia said Kerryon Johnson has "progressed very well" and that it's on the table to potentially bring him back this week.
