David Johnson suffers dislocated wrist, likely to require surgery

The Arizona Cardinals are 0-1 after losing to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, and running back David Johnson also suffered a wrist injury during the game.

Johnson's injury could require surgery, Arians said. All this appears to be exclusively dependent on what route the doctors recommend is best for Johnson moving forward over the next several weeks.

If the 25-year-old Johnson goes on injured reserve, he would be required to miss eight weeks.

He said Johnson is now seeking a second opinion on the injury before deciding whether to undergo surgery. 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.

Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington are the primary running backs in Johnson's absence.

From GMFB: The #AZCardinals await MRI results on star RB David Johnson, who sprained his wrist yesterday.

From a fantasy football perspective, fantasy owners should be preparing for the worst. "I really expect our five-star players to bounce back pretty quick".

Arians said Palmer placed "super pressure on himself to be ideal instead of just play".

Arians said the team's first-round draft pick, Haason Reddick, was outstanding in his start at inside linebacker.

Arians noted that Arizona led 17-15 entering the fourth quarter.
