David Johnson, not only the Arizona Cardinals No.1 running back but the No.1 pick in many fantasy leagues, suffered what has been reported as a sprained left wrist.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Johnson will need surgery.
After leaving Sunday’s game against the Lions in the third quarter, Johnson’s x-rays came back negative.
David Johnson’s wrist injury put Arizona in a situation where Chris Johnson could return.
While at Arizona State, Foster played in 53 games and finished with 2,355 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns on 444 carries and had 2,458 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns on 222 receptions. Before he was hurt, he had 25 carries for 95 yards as the primary backup.
Chris Johnson knows the Cardinals offence well because he spent the last two seasons with the team. Johnson reportedly dislocated his wrist, and based on what head coach Bruce Arians had to say to reporters today, the Cardinals are probably going to be without Johnson for quite some time.
Playing a running back with an injured upper extremity is a coaching decision. That set up a 10-yard touchdown pass to rookie Golladay to give Detroit its first lead of the day, 21-17. Logan is expected to miss up to 12 weeks of action. Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington were the two players who stepped in during Johnson’s absence, but the Cardinals also signed D.J. Foster off the New England Patriots practice squad, per Rapoport. Things may get very bad in Arizona. He averaged just 3.8 yards per carry last season and did not have a run longer than 18 yards.
The Lions wide receiver was seen wearing a splint on his left ring finger after game but told the Detroit Free Press that the injured finger felt “great”.
