Looks Like David Johnson Will Be Out For A Long Time

Speaking Monday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said David Johnson is seeking a second opinion on his wrist injury, but that his current prognosis is the same as T.J. Logan's, who is on injured reserve with a wrist issue. On Sunday, Chris Mortensen reported he could be out for up to half the season or more.

There is an immediate positive sign as the x-rays performed on the injury have already come back negative with no breaks or fractures.

A top fantasy pick, the 25-year-old finished last season with 293 carries for 1,239 yards and 16 touchdowns, and 80 receptions for 879 yards and four touchdowns.

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.

That return without missing a game seems to be out the window now, if It was even realistic before. Logan is expected to miss 12 weeks. "David Johnson became David Johnson because of somebody's injury".

The injury will test the depth of the team on the offensive line. Veldheer was moved to right tackle in the offseason to make way for Humphries.

As far the game goes, Arians blamed the loss on his best players. The other running back, Andre Ellington, did contribute in the passing game with a pair of catches for 35 yards, including a 24-yard catch-and-run play in the fourth quarter.
