Cardinals RB David Johnson to undergo wrist surgery

13 September 2017

David Johnson left the Cardinals' Week 1 loss to the Lions with a wrist injury.

Johnson's x-rays came back negative but he'll undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the injury. The initial report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen stated that Johnson could either "miss a "few weeks" or 'half the season or more, '" which would be the case if the wrist was fractured. Logan is expected to miss up to 12 weeks of action. After a 25-yard return set the Lions up inside Arizona territory, Stafford steered the offense 42 yards in 11 plays, finding Marvin Jones in the end zone on a broken play for a six-yard score. In two games against the 49ers last season, Johnson ran the football 46 times for 212 yards and three touchdowns.

Johnson's injury could require surgery, Arians said. Johnson rushed for 814 yards and three touchdowns in his first year with the team in 2015.

O'Brien pulled Savage after he lost two fumbles - one that was returned for a touchdown - and threw for just 62 yards as the Jaguars built a 19-0 lead by halftime.

Injuries are a reality for all 32 National Football League teams.

La Canfora added that Johnson will be brought in to add backfield depth following the wrist injury suffered by starter David Johnson in Week 1. Previous year he went for 2,118 total yards and is widely regarded as one of the league's best all-purpose running backs.
