Johnson (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Giants. Johnson turned in full practices all week, but his status on the fringe of the Vikings' receiving corps will keep him in street clothes in Week 16. Instead, Teddy Bridgewater will rely upon Mike Wallace, Stefon Diggs, and Jarius Wright to support the passing attack.
Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears. A mid-week addition to the injury report, Johnson wouldn't necessarily have a role even if he were healthy. He didn't play any offensive snaps in a Week 14 loss to the Cardinals, marking the fifth straight game in which he logged fewer than 20 snaps.
Johnson played a season-low seven snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to Seattle, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Johnson hasn't had a pass thrown his way the last four games as he's become only a reserve on the bench at this point.
Johnson was not targeted in the passing game and played just nine snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. It's not a good sign for Johnson's fantasy value that he was a non-factor in a game where Minnesota fell behind early and to throw the ball. It looks like Johnson won't have a significant role in the offense the rest of the season unless a few injuries strike the receiving corps.
Johnson had one reception for 25 yards and was targeted just twice in Sunday's win over St. Louis. After missing two games due to a rib injury, Johnson has become a secondary option in the Minnesota passing game with the emergence of Stefon Diggs as the team's primary receiver. Johnson has just three receptions and five targets in the last three games.
