David Johnson to undergo wrist surgery, be placed on IR

David Johnson RB

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted Tuesday that Cardinals are placing Johnson on the injured reserve list. Losing David Johnson obviously deals a huge blow to Arizona's offense, but the Cardinals will still hope to be competitive in spite of the injury.

Johnson suffered the wrist injury in the second half of the Cardinals' 35-23 loss on Sunday when he fumbled the ball. His 120 targets in the passing game were 26 more than Le'Veon Bell for the most among running backs. "I was that guy that was getting multiple carries". "I finally get a chance to prove my innocence".

While he didn't give a timetable for Johnson, Arians said Logan is expected to be out eight to 12 weeks.

While Johnson broke his wrist, the Bills caught a break on Sunday when LeSean McCoy's wrist injury didn't turn out to be serious. He decided upon Arizona with the understanding that his role would expand compared to last season, but fumbling issues in training camp helped lead to Arizona releasing him before Week 1. "He just needs to stay patient". Before he was hurt, he had 25 carries for 95 yards as the primary backup. Arians had said earlier that bringing back veteran Chris Johnson was an option, but that door would close if Foster signs.

Johnson rushed for 814 yards and three touchdowns in his first year with the team in 2015.

"Once we know for sure, I have all the confidence (in other backs)", Arians said.

This isn't good. The Cardinals didn't look good yesterday and they lost their best player. "And we'll see what's out there". Initial x-rays were negative, but an MRI on Monday was set to reveal more about if, or more likely how long, he'll be out.
