Sep 14 10:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he expects the offense to change 'drastically' without RB David Johnson (wrist).

Sep 13 10:23am ET

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) will have surgery on his dislocated wrist Thursday, Sept. 14, and the team is hoping he returns in December.

Sep 13 12:50am ET

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told reporters that he hopes to have star running back David Johnson back by Christmas. This comes one day after Johnson was told he would miss two to three months as a result of wrist surgery. Fantasy owners should be concerned, as Johnson was most likely the core of every team he was drafted into. With news that Chris Johnson has re-signed with the Cardinals, it remains to be seen how the backfield will unfold in the coming weeks, but the Cards are expected to employ a running-back-by-committee approach, headlined by Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington.

Sep 13 12:13am ET

Adding more context to an earlier report, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told Sirius XM NFL Radio Tuesday, Sept. 12, he is hopeful RB David Johnson (wrist) can return 'by Thanksgiving or Christmas.' In the meantime, Arians hinted RB Andre Ellington would be the player most likely to carry the load for the Cardinals in Johnson's absence.

Sep 12 11:23pm ET

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told reporters Tuesday, Sept. 12, he hopes RB David Johnson (wrist) will be able to return the Reserve/Injured list by Christmas.

Sep 12 4:53pm ET

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) was officially placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 12. Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Cardinals) was officially re-signed in a corresponding move.

Sep 12 2:50pm ET

Cardinals star running back David Johnson will have wrist surgery and is expected to miss two to three months following the Cardinals game against the Lions in the first week of the season. The Cardinals are placing Johnson on injured reserve this season, which means he can still come back after a minimum of eight weeks. This is devastating news to fantasy owners who most likely selected Johnson with a top three pick in drafts this year. Kerwynn Williams becomes an immediate waiver wire pickup and owners should keep tabs on the situation surrounding the resigning of Chris Johnson.

Sep 12 11:43am ET

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) will have surgery this week and is expected to miss two to three months, according to a source. Johnson will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list designated to return.

Sep 11 3:23pm ET

Updating an ongoing story, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) has been diagnosed with a dislocated wrist. He is seeking a second opinion as to whether or not he needs surgery.

Sep 11 3:20pm ET

According to a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (wrist) is expected to miss an "extended period of time," and is a candidate for injured reserve. Rapsheet's report came minutes after ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Johnson and the Cardinals were still considering all the options. Schefter maintains either two-to-four weeks or three-to-four months is a possibility depending on which doctor's recommendation the Cardinals go with. If Johnson were to go on injured reserved, that means that he would miss at least eight weeks, but he should be stashed on the IR either way . Andre Ellington has proven time and again he can't stay healthy with an early-down role, making Kerwynn Williams the best future play in Arizona.

Sep 11 3:13pm ET

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) may be placed on the Reserve/Injured list if he is forced to miss a significant amount of time, according to sources.

Sep 11 2:53pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) could have surgery on his injured wrist, according to a source. A decision on whether or not to have the surgery is expected within 24 to 48 hours.

Sep 10 7:53pm ET

Updating a previous report, the primary diagnosis for Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is a sprained wrist, sources said Sunday, Sept. 10.

Sep 10 7:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) rushed 11 times for just 23 yards in the Week 1 loss at Detroit and he was forced to leave the game due to a wrist injury. He was able to add six receptions for 68 yards on nine targets.

Sep 10 3:43pm ET

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) suffered a wrist injury in Week 1 and is considered questionable to return.

Sep 10 3:23pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (undisclosed) had to leave the Week 1 game after suffering an undisclosed injury but was standing on the sidelines after walking off the field.

Jul 31 1:40pm ET

In an interview with Mike Jurecki from Arizona Sports, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald explained that he doesn't think it will be difficult for running back David Johnson to eclipse 1,000 rushing yards as well as 1,000 receiving yards. Johnson himself stated that this was a goal of his for the upcoming season and explained that he should have had this stat line last season as well. When this information is combined with the statement made by head coach Bruce Arians about giving Johnson 30 touches a game, it is clear that Johnson is not only a lock for the top three picks in virtually every draft but should be considered the favorite to be picked first overall, regardless of the format. As long as he doesn't get injured, Johnson has the ability and opportunity to repeat and exceed his stats from last year.

Jul 30 4:03pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson has a personal goal of 1,000 yards rushing in 1,000 yards receiving in 2017, and WR Larry Fitzgerald is backing him in that quest. 'I don't think it's going to be that difficult. When you have that kind of skill set, what (Johnson) has, I don't think it's all that difficult - he just needs the opportunities - I mean the guy, he's special,' Fitzgerald said.

Jul 27 10:23pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson believes he can reach 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards this year because of how much he has improved as a receiver. 'I would have had it last year if I didn't mess up on those routes,' Johnson said. 'I missed so many routes last year.'

Jul 22 10:03am ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson has slimmed down to 223 pounds and said that he feels more comfortable and wants to play at this weight.
