X-rays negative for David Johnson; MRI on Monday


The Cardinals lost their opener. They now have to worry whether they’ll lose their best player, for a while.

The good news is that X-rays on running back David Johnson’s wrist were negative. Bad news (perhaps) is that he’ll have an MRI on Monday.

Plenty of potentially problematic injuries will show up not on an X-ray but will show up on an MRI. So the Cardinals will have to worry about whether Johnson has the kind of injury that may cause Johnson to miss some time.

  1. Meh, Cards didn’t play their best. David Johnson still had 90 all purpose yards despite playing 2/3rds of the game. Palmer was to blame for two horrible passes, but he always starts slow. Once Palmer gets back with it, Cards offense will be humming again. Funny how some comment on the Oline, must be ignorant of the fact that the Cards lost their starting RT in the first quarter.

  2. The Lions shut down David Johnson (2 yards per carry) and Palmer wasn’t good enough to compensate. Also, the Cardinals didn’t get enough pressure on Stafford.
