The Arizona Cardinals running back was emphatic Wednesday when asked whether he'd return from the ankle injury that kept him out the past two tilts.
"I'm definitely playing," Johnson said, via ESPN. "I'm definitely playing. I'm good. I'm ready to go."
The 27-year-old running back added that he was close to a return last week but was kept on the sideline out of precaution. With just one carry in Week 7, Johnson hasn't seen a real workload since Oct. 13.
Coach Kliff Kingsbury noted this week that the team won't overwork Johnson in his return.
With Johnson and Drake each owning a dual-threat ability, it will be interesting to track how much Kingsbury gets them on the field together Sunday against Tampa Bay, either both in the backfield or one split out wide.
