Lions motivated to avoid losing back-to-back games

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Lions are one of six teams in the NFC with a winning record. The Lions haven't lost two straight and hope to keep it that way at Cleveland in a matchup of 3-2 teams. They might have to play without All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson again. Johnson didn't practice Wednesday, three days after being inactive in a loss at Green Bay because of an injured right knee. Detroit coach Jim Schwartz says the team may not know whether Johnson can play against the Browns until Sunday. Lions receiver Nate Burleson was on the practice field without a cast on his broken left arm, but his return isn't imminent. Kick off Sunday in Cleveland is at 1 p.m.
