Bad news for David Johnson

I pretty much crushed my fantasy football league last year and Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson was a big reason for it. The guy is an incredible back and a fantasy monster.

Well, he’s not going to be a fantasy monster for quite a long time this year. According to Ian Rapoport, Johnson busted his wrist pretty good in yesterday’s loss to the Detroit Lions and he’s going to be out a while.

“Sources: #AZCardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to miss an extended period of time. Getting more opinions, but an IR candidate,” Rapoport tweets.

This isn’t good. The Cardinals didn’t look good yesterday and they lost their best player. This could be a long season and if the losing continues, they might not even consider bringing Johnson back off of injured reserve (if that’s what they end up doing).

Chris Johnson will get some playing time probably until they realize he’s ineffective. Would they kick the tires on DeAngelo Williams? Start combing practice squads?
