Cardinals waiting to find out severity of David Johnson's wrist injury

Bruce Arians announced Monday afternoon that star running back David Johnson has a dislocated wrist and will probably require surgery.

After an initial report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen suggesting Johnson could miss as much as "half the season", some optimism came pointing to a possibility he'd be able to play in Week 2.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Johnson could miss no time at all after being injured against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Cardinals were counting on him to play a significant role in their offense again this year (as were the thousands of fantasy players who drafted Johnson first overall).

This is the second straight game that Johnson suffered an injury.

Last season Johnson totaled 1,239 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns.

That return without missing a game seems to be out the window now, if It was even realistic before.

While he didn't give a timetable for Johnson, Arians said Logan is expected to be out eight to 12 weeks.

John Wetzel will replace Humphries at left tackle.

This is the same injury suffered by rookie running back T.J. Logan during the Hall of Fame Game in August. He was diagnosed with a sprained wrist and underwent further testing Monday. "I really expect our five-star players to bounce back pretty quick".
