NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that former Giants DT Austin Johnson is expected to sign with the Chargers. Johnson began his career a stronger run defender than pass rusher, but his Pro Football Focus grades point to that flipping in a breakthrough 2021 campaign. Johnson still doesn't look like a special performer, but he joins a Chargers front that struggled in 2021 -- especially against the run. Don't expect Johnson to be a high-impact IDP producer, but he cracked the top 30 last year in his 1st shot as a full-time player.

Giants CB Adoree' Jackson (quad) and DT Austin Johnson (foot) are active for today's game against the Bears. Neither carries big IDP intrigue for Week 17 lineups, though.

Giants DL Austin Johnson (foot) is active for today's game against the Eagles.

Giants DL Leonard Williams (triceps) and Austin Johnson (foot) are active for today's game against the Cowboys. Both starters entered the day questionable. Johnson looks iffier than Williams, as he managed only 1 limited practice this week on his injured foot.

Giants D-linemen Austin Johnson (foot) and Leonard Williams (triceps) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Johnson put in just a limited Friday practice after missing the 1st 2 days. He's coming off a season-high snap share in the loss to the Chargers. We'll see about Johnson's status Sunday. Williams managed limited practices all week, despite initial reports that the Giants feared his season might be over. Losing either player would further ding an already weak run defense and shaky pass rush.
