Surgery likely for Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson after wrist injury

During his Monday press conference, Cardinals' head coach Bruce Arians offered a pessimistic parallel between Johnson to another similarly injured running back on the team.

From GMFB: The #AZCardinals await MRI results on star RB David Johnson, who sprained his wrist yesterday. Regardless of the final decision, Kerwynn Williams figures to lead the Arizona backfield Week 2 in Indianapolis, with Andre Ellington also handling an increased role. Johnson went down after he was hit by three players on the reception.

He is coming off his first full season as the starter where he racked up 1,239 rushing yards with 16 touchdowns along with 80 catches for 879 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

This is the same injury suffered by rookie running back T.J. Logan during the Hall of Fame Game in August.

He was hoping to chase history again in 2017, after finishing last season 121 yards from becoming just the third National Football League player in history to gain 1000 rushing and receiving yards.

David Johnson likely is headed for injured reserve, but not necessarily for the season.

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

John Wetzel will replace Humphries at left tackle.

"I don't know anything about x-rays yet", he said. "He knows he didn't play very well", Arians said.
