News: Johnson tallied a team-high eight tackles (six solo) and two picks - including one returned for a touchdown - in Sunday's win over Washington. He took the field for all 60 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Impact: Despite a significant increase in Tyrann Mathieu's snap count -- 49 versus 15 last Sunday -- Johnson continues to be a mainstay in the Cardinals' secondary, equaling starting corners Antonio Cromartie and Patrick Peterson by logging all snaps on defense. As the team's leading tackler with 33, Johnson's peripheral stats so far put him over the top as the No. 1 IDP of the bunch. Meanwhile, because defensive coordinator Todd Bowles continues to use six defensive backs more often than not, there's no reason to believe Johnson can't keep up the torrid start to his sixth NFL campaign.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson contributed six tackles (five solo) and one tackle for loss during Sunday's loss at Denver. Overall, he played 77-of-81 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Impact: Because the Cardinals' defense is banged up, coordinator Todd Bowles has had to rely on his secondary to shore up deficiencies elsewhere. Johnson has so far taken on far more snaps than Tyrann Mathieu (who logged just 15 snaps Sunday), the No. 1 free safety on the depth chart, due to the latter's recovery from last December's knee ligament tears. Consequently, Johnson is the relevant IDP option among the duo until Mathieu displays an ability to play most downs.(RotoWire, )
