Kerryon Johnson lands on IR with knee injury, Lions hoping for return

The Detroit Lions placed running back Kerryon Johnson on injured reserve with a knee injury.

What It Means:

Johnson is undergoing knee surgery Tuesday. The Lions are hopeful he will be able to return later this season, but it wouldn't be until Week 16 at the earliest. Sixth-round rookie Ty Johnson is taking over the early-down role, with J.D. McKissic as a change-of-pace option.

Johnson has 92 carries for 308 yards (3.3 per carry) and 2 touchdowns this season. He also has 9 catches on 14 targets for 126 yards and 1 touchdown.
