Johnson doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Vikings, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Johnson was limited Thursday due to a knee injury, but he returned to full participation Friday and is good to go for the wild-card matchup. However, the reserve wideout has caught just nine of 22 targets for 99 yards across 14 appearances this season, so his presence shouldn't have a major impact on the Giants' offense.

Gainwell carried the ball five times for 35 yards in Sunday's Week 18 win over the Giants, giving him 240 yards on the season.
Analysis: Gainwell didn't make a big impact on the regular-season finale, though his 35 yards represented his second-highest mark of the season. With starting running back Miles Sanders staying healthy all season and finishing eighth in the league with 259 carries, there simply wasn't much for Gainwell to do. The second-year back's 4.5 yards per carry was a small step forward from his 4.3-yard average as a rookie, but he took steps back in carries (53), yards, receptions (23), receiving yards (169) and total touchdowns (4).

Commanders GM Martin Mayhew declined to answer when reporters asked him if Wentz will be back with the team in 2023, Scott Abraham of 7News DC reports.
Analysis: Wentz presumably needs to accept a pay cut to have any chance at returning, as he's scheduled for a non-guaranteed $20 million base salary in 2023 and has a $5 million roster bonus due March 17, per Spotrac. Having traded for Wentz last offseason, the Commanders can get out of his contract without any dead-cap charge after he went 2-5 as a starter and finished bottom five among qualified passers for YPA (6.0), INT rate (3.3 percent), passer rating (80.2) and QBR (32.7). It was a bad enough season that he may only be in the mix for backup jobs in 2023.

Elliott made all five of his field-goal attempts as well as his only extra-point try in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Giants.
Analysis: Elliott converted from 32, 52, 39, 54 and 22 yards on his field goals. In 16 games this season, he made 20 of 23 field-goal attempts and 51 of 53 extra-point tries en route to 111 points, which ranked just inside the top 20 for kickers league-wide.

Sanders rushed 11 times for 33 yards in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Giants.
Analysis: Sanders was able to suit up after being limited in practice by a knee issue, but he failed to make his usual impact. His 3.0 yards per carry represented his second-lowest mark of the season, and the Eagles seemingly didn't want to overwork him, as he only saw the field for 29 offensive snaps. It wasn't a triumphant conclusion to the season, but the fourth-year back nonetheless finished the year with career highs in rushing yards (1,269) and touchdowns (11). With the Eagles' win securing a first-round bye, Sanders could be back to full strength for the team's first playoff game.
