Josh Johnson completed nine of 18 passes for 85 yards, no TDs, and a pick, adding three carries for four yards in the Lions' 30-23 loss to the Texans on Friday.
Less than a week after signing with the Lions, Johnson made his debut. He averaged a putrid 4.7 yards per attempt and threw a pick in the loss. Johnson will compete with Tom Savage and David Fales for a backup job behind Matthew Stafford.
