Johnson supplied six tackles (four solo), one quarterback hit, and an 88-yard interception return for a touchdown in Sunday's loss at Atlanta.

Facing a 17-0 deficit with the Falcons again knocking on the door early in the second quarter, Johnson provided some breathing room for a time by jumping a Julio Jones route and taking it to the house. The pick marked Johnson's second in three contests, and fourth on the season, which equates to a career-best total for the six-year pro. Additionally, his 76 tackles leads the Cardinals and ranks 10th among the league's defensive backs, ensuring his viability across the IDP landscape.

Johnson (back) was limited in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Johnson picked off his third pass of the season in Week 11, which aided in the Cardinals' tight victory over the Lions. Because Arizona utilizes six defensive backs on most snaps, he isn't without significant opportunity on a weekly basis due to the other names in his backfield, in particular Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie.

Johnson took the field for all 92 of the Cardinals' defensive snaps in Sunday's win versus the Eagles, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 reports.

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.

Johnson (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Eagles, the Cardinals' official site reports.

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.

Johnson (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

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.

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.

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.

Johnson tallied a team-high eight tackles (six solo), two picks, and one touchdown after interception during Sunday's win against Washington. In the end, he took the field for all 60 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

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 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.
