David Johnson's X-rays may have come back negative, but he's not in the clear yet. According to Ian Rapoport, Johnson busted his wrist pretty good in yesterday's loss to the Detroit Lions and he's going to be out a while.
Although he didn't give a timetable for Johnson, Arians says Logan is expected to be sidelined eight to 12 weeks.
Last season, Chris Johnson played in only four games for the Cardinals, carrying 25 times for 95 yards. He was put on injured reserve, although he might return late this season. (He had 22 carries for 58 yards.) With Johnson more involved in the passing game, playing with what would essentially be one hand would be more of a hindrance.
We will update this post when official word of Johnson's status comes, but for now it sounds as though the star back will miss significant time this season. Johnson was taken to the locker room soon following the turnover to address a wrist injury. Previous year he went for 2,118 total yards and is widely regarded as one of the league's best all-purpose running backs. Logan on IR. Chris Johnson is an option to re-sign.
Johnson accounted for 2,118 yards and 373 touches (293 rushes, 80 receptions) in 2016.
Although it's by no means a ideal solution, David Johnson's production in Arizona would have been impossible to replicate.
The wrist injury was a factor on the ensuing fumble, Arians said.
