Johnson recorded six tackles (four solo) and two sacks Sunday against the Bears.
Johnson logged 56 of 76 defensive snaps Sunday, the most of any Bengals' defensive linemen. He'll have a tough time accruing more sacks in Week 15 against the Vikings, since QB Case Keenum is second in the league with a sack on just 3.58 percent of his dropbacks.
Johnson (back) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.
Johnson was considered questionable to play due to a minor back injury that's been nagging him since late October. Now that he's cleared to play, the Bengals will enter Monday's game with all of their usual starters along the defensive line.
Johnson is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Steelers with a back injury.
Johnson was a new addition to the injury report this week and seems to be trending in the wrong direction since he was unable to practice Saturday. There's no clear indication at this point whether the 30-year-old is likely to play, and Jordan Willis and Chris Smith would likely step in at defensive end if Johnson cannot suit up for Week 13.
Johnson (illness) put in a full practice Thursday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
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 has tallied 21 tackles and three sacks in eight games this season.

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