DETROIT, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- The Detroit Lions have lost wide receiver Kevin Johnson for the rest of the season after he suffered an Achilles' tendon injury.

Johnson was injured while running a pass pattern during the Lions' 13-10 win over Cleveland Sunday. He said he felt as if he had been kicked and went down.

Johnson, playing his seventh season, has 17 catches for 133 yards on the year. In 101 career games he has caught 384 passes for 4,595 yards and 25 touchdowns while playing for the Browns, Jaguars, Ravens and Lions.

The Lions had already lost three receivers as Charles Rogers (suspended), Roy Williams (quadriceps), and Eddie Drummond were all inactive in the game against the Browns.

The Lions also lost defensive tackle Shaun Rogers to a right medial collateral ligament injury and cornerback Dre' Bly.
