Johnson (hand) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.

Johnson's inactive status is a bit of a surprise, as he was able to play through the ailment in Week 9, though he didn't record a tackle after playing 46 snaps. With his absence, look for Larry English and Jacquies Smith to see a few extra snaps at defensive end.

Johnson saw the practice field in a limited capacity for most of the week, and was deemed healthy enough to suit up prior to the afternoon contest.

Johnson (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Johnson bumped up from no participation Wednesday, which can be considered a rest day. If he's able to suit up Sunday at New Orleans, he'll be hard-pressed to bring down Drew Brees, who has been sacked just four times in four contests this season.

Johnson (ankle) didn't partake in practice Wednesday.

Johnson's season has so far been a roller coaster, with one absence and two signature IDP performances through four games. He has 11 tackles (seven solo), two sacks, and one forced fumble to his name, meaning owners should monitor his status as the week carries on.
