David Johnson May Get Wrist Surgery, Could Miss 3-4 Months
Monday September 11th, 2017

Cardinals running back David Johnson will be seeking a second opinion on his wrist injury, coach Bruce Arians said Monday.

Arians added that the initial prognosis on Johnson is a dislocated wrist, and he might get surgery. He also compared the injury to the dislocated wrist suffered by rookie running back T.J. Logan, who is on injured reserve and expected to miss 12 weeks.

Additionally, Arians said the team is looking into re-signing Chris Johnson, who they cut during the preseason.

David Johnson will make a decision regarding surgery within the next two days, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
