Cardinals waiting to find out severity of David Johnson's wrist injury

David Johnson RB

A second opinion is in order to hone on the correct course of action, but Johnson will likely require surgery in the near future to fix the same wrist injury as rookie T.J. Logan, who has a recovery timetable of 8-12 weeks. Johnson is fully expected to miss multiple weeks and is possibly headed to I.R. Playing from behind much of the day, the Cardinals used Andre Ellington on 20 snaps, Kerwynn Williams for nine, and Elijhaa Penny on one.

If Johnson were to be placed on the IR list, it would mean he would miss at least eight weeks of action before he would be eligible to return to the active roster.

The Cardinals plan to place Johnson on injured reserve, but with a chance to return this season, Schefter reported.

Although it's by no means a flawless solution, David Johnson's production in Arizona would have been impossible to replicate.

Johnson's injury could require surgery, Arians said. The next and final time he touched the ball he fumbled at the Arizona 10-yard line to set up a Lions touchdown. The Arizona Cardinals now have Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington at backup running back, but could sign another player. Previous year he went for 2,118 total yards and is widely regarded as one of the league's best all-purpose running backs. Start combing practice squads? The key question at that point will be if the Cardinals will have anything play for over the second half of the season.

Four players on the Texans suffered concussions in their blowout loss to Jacksonville, including their two top tight ends.

Before getting injured Sunday, Johnson was on his way to having a nice game.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Johnson rushed for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first six National Football League seasons but hasn't reached that mark since 2013. In addition to being the team's leading rusher previous year, he was the second-leading receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald. The Colts allowed 63 rushing yards to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1.

David Johnson, in his third season as a pro, was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated NFL preview edition and the No. 1 pick of countless fantasy football fans.
