Cardinals RB David Johnson to undergo wrist surgery

Johnson (5-11, 203) played in the preseason with the Cardinals after re-signing on July 20 before being released on September 2.

Arizona Cardinals star running back David Johnson, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson, and San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster were just some of the notable players to leave the field in Week 1 with injuries. Johnson made the Pro Bowl and was named as a first team All-Pro for his efforts.

The Patriots are set to lose one of their depth players at running back. This is a awful blow to Johnson's fantasy owners as their top overall pick will be sidelined for a good chunk of the year.

Last season, Chris Johnson played in only four games for the Cardinals, carrying 25 times for 95 yards. If this injury is serious enough to warrant a stint on short-term injured reserve, Johnson wouldn't' be available until the Cardinals' contest in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. If Mazzant denies the emergency request to put his own ruling on hold pending further hearings, the National Football League could make a similar argument to the appeals court in hope of getting a hearing within days after Mazzant decides. Johnson was fundamentally important to Arizona's offense last season.

"We'll find out the severity of that", Arians said after the game.

It also creates a new shortfall for a receiving group still trying to overcome the season-ending left knee injury Cameron Meredith suffered August 27.

We'll call this one the "super obvious" choice, but it may not be the best one on the board. On quarterback Matthew Stafford's first throw, Cardinals cornerback Justin Bethel snagged the pick and returned it 72 yards, putting his team up, 7-0. He was put on injured reserve, although he might return late this season.
