Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson was seeking a second opinion after having an initial prognosis of a dislocated left wrist, in a 35-23 loss to the Detroit Lions. Although the coaching staff did not have all the details until Tuesday (Sept. 12) afternoon, the early prognosis was that Johnson will need surgery on his left wrist, according to Bruce Arians. Rookie running back T.J. Logan is currently out eight to 12 weeks with the same injury. As Johnson's second opinion confirms that he does indeed, have a dislocated left wrist. Arians had this to say about the injury of David Johnson: 

"It's always a huge blow to lose a top player, but it's not the end of the world. We've got quality guys on our team. It's an opportunity for somebody to step up. David Johnson became David Johnson because of somebody's injury," Arians said. 

On Monday before Coach Arians knew for sure what had to happen next with Johnson; he was optimistic about the possibility of adjusting to the situation at hand, stating that he has "all the confidence" in his running backs. Arians had this to say, "Andre [Ellington] looked very good. Kerwynn [Williams] was good. Our young guys, we'll see what we got and what's available." 

With Johnson being placed on injury reserve for 2-3 months, the Cardinals re-signed running back Chris Johnson who was just released from the team on Sept. 1.
