Johnson (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Johnson appears to have fully recovered from an MCL sprain in his left knee sustained during an Oct. 28 win over the Jaguars, and will make his return to the field against the Saints on Sunday. The star right tackle will slot back into Philadelphia's starting lineup, relegating Halapoulivaati Vaitai back to a reserve role.
Johnson (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
After being diagnosed with an MCL sprain in his left knee following the Eagles' Oct. 28 win over the Jaguars, Johnson nearly defied the odds to play through the injury without missing time, but he was ultimately ruled out ahead of the team's Week 10 tilt with the Cowboys. With another week to recover from the injury, it appears that Johnson -- while still hurting -- is in a better place health-wise. If cleared to play, Johnson should take back his usual duties as the starting right tackle, sending Halapoulivaati Vaitai back to a reserve role.
Johnson (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Johnson is still recovering from a Grade 2 MCL sprain sustained Week 8, and his availability for Sunday's tilt against the Saints is murky at best. The star lineman will likely be a game-time decision Week 11, and if Johnson is unable to suit up expect Halapoulivaati Vaitai to once again slot into the starting lineup.
Johnson (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Johnson will remain sidelined as he continues to progress in his recovery from a Grade 2 MCL sprain sustained in Week 8. It appeared that the star offensive tackle had a chance to suit up, but will ultimately sit out Sunday's divisional tilt against the Cowboys. Halapoulivaati Vaitai will replace Johnson in the starting lineup, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
In a turn of events, Eagles coach Doug Pederson expects Johnson (knee) to practice Wednesday and to play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
This is a massive shift from the timeline given last week of approximately a month on the sidelines. Assuming he suits up as expected, look for Johnson to retake his role as the starting right tackle, which would move Halapoulivaati Vaitai back to the bench.
