David Johnson could need wrist surgery, visiting with specialists

  • David Johnson RB

As the Arizona Cardinals and David Johnson feared, the third-year running back needs surgery to correct the dislocated wrist he suffered in Arizona's season-opening win over Detroit on Sunday.

It was reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter that he is expected to miss 2-3 months. The Cardinals are placing him on injured reserve, which means Johnson has to miss at least eight weeks.

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

"He wants to find a way to play", Arians said of Johnson, via Arizona Sports 98.7.

Last season Johnson totaled 1,239 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns. Before he was hurt, he had 25 carries for 95 yards as the primary backup. He was diagnosed with a sprained wrist and underwent further testing Monday. Johnson is third among active players with 9,537 rushing yards and since entering the National Football League in 2008 ranks top-five in attempts (4th-2,118), and yards from scrimmage (5th-11,749). In the following Cardinals offensive series, Johnson bounced the run to the left side of the field and was stripped with Jarrad Davis of the Lions recovering. Kerwynn Williams and Johnson could wind up splitting work in the running back spot.

Johnson clearly favored the wrist after the fumble and did not really use his left wrist to help himself get up.

The Cardinals chose to cut Johnson rather than Andre Ellington, who got the final running back spot on the roster.

The Lions veteran receiver led the team with 10 receptions for 107 yards in Detroit's win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Scandrick suffered a hand injury during Sunday night's win over the New York Giants, and owner Jerry Jones confirmed after the game that the cornerback has a fracture in his hand. "It's one of those things ... we'll wait until we get back".
