Johnson will sit out while Delmas is currently active.
This will be another opportunity for Detroit's reserve receivers to step up in Johnson's absence. Last week at Cleveland, the Lions' starters on offense recorded just four first downs and three points in five series vs. the Browns.
On defense, Delmas will be making his first appearance this preseason. That means we'll get a look at the projected Week 1 starting secondary of Delmas,
Delmas has been on a limited practice schedule during training camp with the idea of getting him ready for the regular season. But Delmas told reporters this week that he wanted to play and that he felt it was important to knock some of the rust of.
Apparently, the coaching staff agreed.
The secondary has struggled the first two weeks of the preseason, allowing Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and Cleveland's Brandon Weeden to combine for 242 yards passing, a 72 percent completion percentage with three touchdowns and one interception.
