Johnson spoke with NFL Media in London on Tuesday and provided a bit of detail about his ongoing recovery.
Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said he did not know whether the team worked out Hayne.
Johnson had said earlier that he seriously doubted the injury would prevent him from making the trip.
“Me and Diggs switched up something we had been doing all game and gave a different look,” Glover Quin explained after the game.
Caldwell said the potential absences of Fauria and Ebron will not influence the decision on whether to play Johnson.
Ideally, later in the season the Lions will have Johnson healthy and be able to surround him with more fully developed wide receivers.
After six weeks, the Lions rank 27th in points per game (19.3) and 23rd in yards per game (330.2).
Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said that players can come to coaches if they have a problem with how they are being used by the team.
