Cardinals re-signing running back Chris Johnson

Posted September 15, 2017

The Cardinals had a need at running back after starter David Johnson suffered a wrist injury on Sunday. The initial report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen stated that Johnson could either "miss a "few weeks" or 'half the season or more, '" which would be the case if the wrist was fractured.

The Arizona Cardinals kicked off their 2017 season with a loss against the Detroit Lions, but they will get the chance to bounce back against the undermanned Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Sept. 17, at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington at first in line for touches in Johnson's absence, but the Cardinals appear set to re-add a familiar face to the running back mix.

"Sources: #AZCardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to miss an extended period of time". He must spend at least eight weeks on IR, which at the earliest would allow a return to the field November 7. Arians said Johnson was the final cut he made to reduce the roster to 53 players. He was placed on injured reserve on September 2 because of an undisclosed injury, and then released two days later.

Johnson, a first-team All-Pro last season, registered a league-best 2,118 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns.

Coach Bruce Arians said Monday that Johnson's injury was the same as that of Arizona rookie T.J. Logan.

Johnson is in his third NFL season after being drafted out of Northern Iowa by Arizona in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Cardinals are also bringing in D.J. Foster, a second-year running back out of Arizona State. "Our young guys, we'll see what we got and what's available". Carson Palmer threw for 269 yards, one touchdown, and three picks against Detroit. "David Johnson became David Johnson because of somebody's injury". Foster made the Patriots roster a year ago as an undrafted free agent.
