Cardinals lose star RB David Johnson to dislocated wrist

He would likely see success against a Colts team that performed poorly to open the season, and the Cardinals need to think long-term with Johnson in hopes of contending for a playoff spot down the stretch. The guy is an incredible back and a fantasy monster. Rapoport said Johnson is getting more opinions on the injury but could be a candidate for the Cardinals' injured reserve list. Start combing practice squads? Logan is expected to miss 12 weeks.

Arians said the injury occurred on a play near the goal line in the third quarter.

That return without missing a game seems to be out the window now, if It was even realistic before. It's an opportunity for somebody to step up.

Johnson will undergo an MRI on Monday, and the results of that test will determine how much time he will miss. Johnson would also be at serious risk of aggravating the injury, which could complicate his recovery if he needed surgery later on.

When asked about Chris Johnson, Arians said the return of the former Cardinals running back is a possibility.

David Johnson was All-Pro at the newly created "flex" position last season and was second-team All-Pro at running back.

This is the same injury suffered by rookie running back T.J. Logan during the Hall of Fame Game in August. He finished with 23 rushing yards on 11 carries and six receptions for 68 yards, giving him 91 yards from scrimmage. "Kerwynn was good", Arians said.
