Johnson (ankle) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Johnson was thought to be facing an "uphill battle" to play as late as Thursday morning, but the right tackle will give it a go regardless. According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, Johnson noted that he is still feeling pain and stiffness in his ankle, but also texted Glazer "divisional game, team needs me, gonna give it a go." Johnson will look to protect Carson Wentz against a Giants pass rush that comes into Week 6 tied for last in the league with only six sacks.
Johnson has been added to the Philadelphia injury report due to a high-ankle sprain and is now listed as questionable, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
According to Rapoport, Johnson is facing an "uphill battle" with respect to playing Thursday night against the Giants. He will test it out during pregame warmups, and should he be unable to go, Halapoulivaati Vaitai is listed as next in line on the Eagles depth chart. The potential absence of Johnson could spell problems for Philadelphia's ability to protect Carson Wentz, as the Giants will be getting back top pass rusher Olivier Vernon (ankle) for the divisional matchup.
Johnson will now make $4.98 million next season, as opposed to the $12.48 million he was scheduled to make. The Eagles were expected to be $9.8 over the salary cap before the move, so the restructured deal will go a long way in helping out the Eagles.
Johnson (concussion) won't carry an injury designation into Monday night's game against the Redskins.
Johnson cleared the league's concussion protocol earlier this week and was a full participant at practice. The 27-year-old looks ready to go for Monday night's divisional matchup with the Redskins.
Johnson (concussion) practiced Tuesday, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Johnson has passed concussion protocol testing, rejoining his teammates on the filed Tuesday. Barring in any major setbacks, the tackle should be ready for Monday night's tilt with the Redskins.
