David Johnson Suffers Sprained Wrist

He is now seeking multiple opinions from various wrist specialists to determine his best course of action. We feel like we can pick up the slack when a guy like David goes down.

While Johnson broke his wrist, the Bills caught a break on Sunday when LeSean McCoy's wrist injury didn't turn out to be serious.

Johnson returned one series later only to fumble the football.

Right tackle Jared Veldheer said losing Johnson for any length of time is "like a sock in the gut".

Veldheer said after talking with Humphries, Humphries is optimistic about of quick recovery. "Later I found out it was his wrist, didn't think it was that bad". You feel for him.

So with the Cardinals now dealing with not having their star running back for an extended period, what should fantasy football owners do? All this appears to be exclusively dependent on what route the doctors recommend is best for Johnson moving forward over the next several weeks. (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.

"If he ain't going to have a big game on the ground then it's going to be receiving".

Once upon a time, Ellington was the Cardinals' featured back. "Hopefully, they can take off right where he left off". There are also reports suggesting the Cardinals will sign running back D.J. Foster off the New England Patriots practice squad. According to both Palmer and head coach Bruce Arians, Palmer's footwork was primarily to blame for the inefficiency. "It was footwork, reading things too fast, and then just accuracy killed him".

Arians said Palmer placed "super pressure on himself to be ideal instead of just play". I'm disappointed in myself.

Johnson suffered the injury in the second half of the Cardinals lackluster season opening loss to the Lions, leaving Arians and Cardinals 0-1 on the season.

Injuries have plagued Ellington during his career, but he can work in tandem with Williams as the No. 2 option until Johnson returns. And because the injury is not expected to be long-term, Veldheer will not be moved. "When he has in the past, he's played pretty solid".

In the offseason, the Cardinals made the decision to swap their tackles.

Without Johnson in the Cardinals backfield, the Colts run defense figures to be at a major advantage come next Sunday afternoon and allows the defense to focus more attention to the likes of perennial Pro Bowler Larry Fitzgerald and the other Cardinals receivers.

Although he didn't give a timetable for Johnson, Arians says Logan is expected to be sidelined eight to 12 weeks. On Monday, O'Brien said he hadn't decided who will start against the Bengals. The sky is not falling. I will get past it. He had tallied 92 total yards on 17 touches. I don't think he's the same quarterback who can carry a team on his shoulders like he once was.

"Wetzel didn't do his job as well as he normally does", Arians said.

Johnson will be checked out again Monday. Chris Johnson was released in the Cardinals' final roster cuts.

"Our five-star players didn't play well enough to beat a team on the road", Arians said.
