Chris Johnson was supposed to bolster the Cardinals backfield depth.

But that plan has been on hold for more than a week with Johnson nursing a hamstring injury.

Now the wait is over.

Johnson returned to practice on Friday after passing running tests on Thursday.

He is expected to suit up and play on Sunday vs. the Raiders.

Head coach Bruce Arians has stated Johnson has the opportunity to compete for the starting job, but that opportunity may be fading fast with preseason coming to a close.
