Philadelphia signed Johnson (appendix) to its practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Johnson missed the end of the Eagles' training camp due to an appendectomy and subsequently didn't make the 53-man roster, but he's now at least back in the fold. He contributed more on special teams than on defense during his rookie season, so if he's to be elevated to the active roster, it will likely be to contribute on that front.

Johnson (appendix) was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Johnson missed the end of training camp due to an appendectomy, which may have been a factor in him missing out on a roster spot. The 25-year-old was a sixth-round pick by Philadelphia in the 2022 Draft and played in 16 games with the team as a rookie, featuring mostly on special teams. Zangaro reports that the Eagles would like to have Johnson back as a member of their practice squad.
Johnson missed practice Saturday after undergoing an appendectomy, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
This news helps explain why Johnson wasn't present for Thursday's preseason tie with Cleveland,. The second-year pro is competing for a spot on the Eagles' initial 53-man roster, so this setback may hurt his chances.
