Johnson (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's road game against the Giants, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson has endured an injury-plagued couple weeks, dealing first with a bad back and then an ankle issue. With the latter in tow, he still managed limited practices both Thursday and Friday before going through a pregame warmup Sunday, according to Bordow. Considering he's received at least 70 percent of the offensive snaps in five of six games this season, Johnson has a great shot to extend his streak of 100-plus yards from scrimmage to four contests versus a Giants unit that has conceded the fifth-most yardage (171 per game) to running backs in 2019. If he yields reps, though, Chase Edmonds is the only Cardinals RB aside from Johnson available to the offense.

Johnson (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson received the questionable tag and seemed headed for a game-time call, but it looks as though he'll play after working as a limited participant Thursday and Friday. Chase Edmonds is the only other available running back on the roster -- D.J. Foster (hamstring) was already ruled out -- so the Cardinals likely would have made a roster move Saturday if Johnson's status were truly in doubt. It's still worth keeping an eye on Sunday's inactives, but Johnson should be good to go in New York.

Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Johnson wouldn't have been healthy enough to play if the game took place Friday instead of Sunday. The running back was a bit more optimistic, noting that he felt good after Friday's limited practice and remains hopeful to suit up against the Giants, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. This sounds like a true game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, with Chase Edmonds headed for a large workload if Johnson is declared inactive. Third-string running back D.J. Foster (hamstring) already has been ruled out, so the Cardinals may need to call up Justin Davis from the practice squad.

Johnson (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Giants, with coach Kliff Kingsbury noting that the running back wouldn't have been able to play if the game took place Friday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite closing out the week with a pair of limited practices, Johnson appears in real danger of missing the Week 7 contest. Kingsbury's comments are rather discouraging, but the running back still has two days to recover before the 1 p.m. EDT kickoff Sunday. If Johnson ends up inactive, Chase Edmonds will be set up for a large workload in a game with one of the largest over/unders of this week's slate.

Johnson (ankle) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson is taking a step in the right direction after missing Wednesday's session. In the end, his odds to play Week 7 will become known upon the release of Friday's injury report. If he's active Sunday, he'll have a great chance to extend his streak with 100 yards from scrimmage to four games against a Giants defense that has given up the fifth-most (171 per game) yardage to running backs this season.

Johnson (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After working through a bad back last week and posting 102 yards from scrimmage and a TD this past Sunday against the Falcons, Johnson is tending to an ankle injury this time around. On Thursday, he was present at the part of the session open to the media, a sign that he'll be listed as limited on the Cardinals' ensuing injury report, at the very least.

Johnson didn't practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

One week removed from having his practice reps capped by a bad back, Johnson has exchanged that injury for a new one. He merely needed one limited showing last week in order to suit up this past Sunday against the Falcons, when he took on a 75 percent share of the offensive snaps. That workload still allowed him to go over 100 yards from scrimmage and reach the end zone twice, but with a different health concern affecting him, Johnson's status will be one to monitor as the week proceeds.

Johnson wasn't present at Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson practiced just one time last week due to a back injury, but the Cardinals still rolled with him for the majority of their Week 6 win against the Falcons. He handled a 75 percent offensive snap share in the contest, turning those reps into 18 touches for 102 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. Meanwhile, backup Chase Edmonds took the field for 29 percent of the plays and finished with seven touches for 67 scrimmage yards and one score. The reason for Johnson's absence hasn't been revealed, but a similar snap breakdown between the two may become the status quo until he gets back to full health.

Johnson carried the ball 12 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and caught six of eight targets for 68 yards and a second TD in Sunday's 34-33 win over the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

While he came into the game nursing a sore back and once again ceded some touches to Chase Edmonds, Johnson still had a hugely productive afternoon, topping 100 scrimmage yards for the third straight week and fourth time this season. He continues to be one of Kyler Murray's favorite options through the air, tying Larry Fitzgerald for the team lead in catches and targets, and Johnson figures to put up big numbers again in Week 7 against a vulnerable Giants defense.
