News: Johnson took the field for all 92 of the Cardinals' defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Eagles, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 reports. Impact: As a result, Johnson ranked second on the team in tackles with 11 (10 solo), while recording a whopping four passes defended. Because the LB corps has been decimated by a confluence of events, defensive coordinator Todd Bowles has hung his hat on a deep secondary, with six defensive backs playing at least 79 percent of the snaps Sunday. However, both Patrick Peterson and Tony Jefferson have entered the concussion protocol, which could place some additional strain on the remaining defensive backs in a Week 9 showdown at Dallas. No matter, as the owner of 47 tackles (42 solo), two picks (one for a touchdown), one fumble recovery, and one sack in seven contests, Johnson should continue to aid IDP pursuits.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Eagles, the Cardinals' official site reports. Impact: Johnson attained a full practice by week's end, which should equate to a majority of the defensive snaps once again in Week 8. Until Tyrann Mathieu displays the ability to handle a full workload, Johnson will handle most of the reps at free safety, allowing him pile on to his 36 tackles (32 solo), two interceptions (one for a touchdown), one sack, and one fumble recovery in six contests.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia. Impact: Johnson is having the best IDP season of his career so far, totaling 36 tackles and two interceptions in six games, but he figures to see his opportunities lessened in the upcoming games as Tyrann Mathieu (knee) reaches full health and rookie first-round pick Deone Bucannon catches up to the speed of the NFL game.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson is slated for an evaluation of his patellar tendon, but the Cardinals believe that the ailment is tendinitis, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Impact: The upcoming exam will ultimately determine Johnson's course of action through practice this week, but full practices are likely out of the question, especially Wednesday's iteration. His three solo tackles in Week 7 doubled as his least dynamic IDP line of the season, which may have been a consequence of playing through the aforementioned ailment.(RotoWire, )
