Johnson (illness) put in a full practice Thursday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The illness resulted in Johnson being limited at Wednesday's practice, but now that he's put in a full session this week, it doesn't appear the defensive end is any danger of missing Sunday's game against the Broncos. The veteran defensive end has tallied 21 tackles and three sacks in eight games this season.

Johnson (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Johnson will be available, he just sustained this injury in Week 8, so his snap counts could become limited if he experiences tightness, since back injuries are tricky. Johnson will return to his starting defensive end role, though, where he as compiled 16 tackles (13 solo) and three sacks through six games this season.

Johnson injured his back Sunday against the Colts and didn't return, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will have his next chance to play in Week 9 against the Jaguars, but if he's unable to recover in time, expect Jordan Willis to slot into his spot. The 30-year-old has 15 tackles (12 solo) and three sacks through five games this season.

Johnson had three tackles (all solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson was questionable with a concussion he suffered in Week 1, but played 57 of 70 defensive snaps to lead the Bengals' defensive line. Now clear of the concussion, the 27-year-old should play a vital role on Cincinnati's defense.

Johnson (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson is entering a favorable matchup in Green Bay, where left tackle David Bakhtiari, a 2016 Pro Bowler, has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Therefore, he'll team up with fellow defensive end Carlos Dunlap to isolate rookie Kyle Murphy in an attempt to pressure Aaron Rodgers.

Johnson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Packers' starting left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) hasn't practiced yet this week, and if he doesn't play, this would be the perfect opportunity for Johnson to pick on Green Bay's reserve linemen. However, if Johnson isn't able to clear concussion protocol by Sunday, expect to see Chris Smith and Jordan Willis in his place again.
