David Johnson RB

David Johnson injured in Cardinals game vs. Lions

He is expected to miss two to three months after undergoing surgery to fix a dislocated wrist, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

If you picked first in your fantasy draft you were dissapointed this weekend, as Le'Veon Bell didn't eclipse 50 yards and David Johnson injured his wrist and will miss 6-8 weeks.

Johnson suffered a wrist injury Sunday in the season opener against Detroit that needs surgery, as first reported by ESPN. He said Tuesday night that Johnson is scheduled to have surgery this week to fix his wrist, which was injured during Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions.

The early returns seem positive. The team could also kick the tires on re-signing veteran back Chris Johnson, who was among the Cardinals' final cuts following the conclusion of the preseason. Johnson will go on injured reserve. Coach Bruce Arians said Monday that David Johnson's injury was the same as that of Arizona rookie T.J. Logan.

The team also signed ex-Arizona State running back D.J. Foster, who grew up in nearby Scottsdale, off the New England practice squad. We've got quality guys on our team.

Chris Johnson is back in the National Football League after a brief stint as a free agent. Johnson, 31, appeared in a career-low four games last season, rushing for just 95 yards and a score. He accounted for 36.1 percent of Arizona's yards previous year and 41.7 percent of its offensive touchdowns. Foster played in three games for the Patriots in 2016 and had six carries for 23 yards.

It was the 24-yard reception that the health of Johnson was starting to become a question.
