Cardinals running back David Johnson was carted off the field with an apparent left knee injury during Sunday’s game against the Rams.
Cardinals running back David Johnson suffered an MCL sprain during Sunday’s game against the Rams and will not require surgery, according to Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910.
Johnson's recovery is expected to take six to eight weeks.
Johnson was wrapped up by Rams lineman Eugene Sims early on in the game, and in the process Sims fell on his left leg causing it to bend the wrong way. He was down, went to the sideline and had his left knee examined. He then left on a cart.
You can watch a GIF of the play below, but we warn you that it’s somewhat gruesome.
Johnson had carried the ball five times for six yards in the first quarter before leaving.
