Cardinals' David Johnson Could Miss 'Half the Season' With Sprained Wrist

According to Ian Rapoport, Johnson busted his wrist pretty good in yesterday's loss to the Detroit Lions and he's going to be out a while.

This is the second straight game that Johnson suffered an injury. The NFL expanded the injured reserve this year to allow teams to recall two players off of injured reserve in a season rather than just one, so the Cardinals would keep one spot open should another key piece go down.

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.

The injury will test the depth of the team on the offensive line. Arians wouldn't put an official timeline on Johnson's return, should that be the injury, but Arians cited rookie running back T.J. Logan, who'll end up missing 8-to-12 weeks with the same injury.

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. Against the Lions, John Wetzel played in Humphries' place.
