Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson reportedly out 2-3 months

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson reportedly out 2-3 months

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Arizona Cardinals are turning to a familiar face to fill the void left by injured running back David Johnson. On Sunday night, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that the MRI results on Monday would determine whether he'd be out for a few weeks or closer to half the season.

Even if Williams is listed atop the depth chart, there is a good chance the Cardinals will take a committee approach with their running backs when they visit the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Four players on the Texans suffered concussions in their blowout loss to Jacksonville, including their two top tight ends.

David Johnson likely is headed for injured reserve, not necessarily for the season but maybe for most of it. National Football League rules allow up to two players to be brought back from IR.

To say this is a big loss for Arizona would be an understatement. (He had 22 carries for 58 yards.) With Johnson more involved in the passing game, playing with what would essentially be one hand would be more of a hindrance.

The 25-year-old had carried the ball 11 times for 23 yards and had caught six passes for 68 yards before injuring his wrist and exiting the game.

After a poor performance in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions, many are questioning whether Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has lost something in ability. Johnson rushed for 814 yards and three touchdowns in his first year with the team in 2015.

The Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly fear Tuitt suffered a season-ending biceps injury in the team's Week 1 win against the Cleveland Browns. X-rays after the game came back negative and suggested that the wrist was only sprained. Losing David Johnson obviously deals a huge blow to Arizona's offense, but the Cardinals will still hope to be competitive in spite of the injury.

Chris Johnson, once one of the NFL's best backs in his days with the Tennessee Titans, knows the Cardinals offense well because he spent the last two seasons with the team.
