With Johnson placed on the injured reserve list, the Cardinals will likely turn to Kerwynn Williams to shoulder the load at the running back position.

Running back David Johnson of the Arizona Cardinals was told he'd need surgery on his wrist after he dislocated it in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

"David Johnson is seeking a second opinion to determine the course for his wrist injury", wrote Darren Urban of the team's official website. On their first drive against the Detroit Lions, quarterback Carson Palmer threw an ugly interception.

Johnson's injury could require surgery, Arians said.

The Cardinals plan to place Johnson on injured reserve, but with a chance to return this season, Schefter reported. Last year's knee injury for Johnson came in the season finale. The other running back, Andre Ellington, did contribute in the passing game with a pair of catches for 35 yards, including a 24-yard catch-and-run play in the fourth quarter. While McCoy rumbled to 110 rushing yards and 49 receiving yards on 27 total touches, Tolbert received 13 touches, tallying 54 yards and a touchdown in the Bills opener. Chris Johnson was released in the Cardinals' final roster cuts. Arizona is coming off of a disappointing 2016 campaign that saw it go 7-8-1 a year after winning 13 games and making it all the way to the NFC Championship Game.

"It's always a huge blow to lose a top player, but it's not the end of the world", Arians said at his Monday news conference. It's an opportunity for someone to step up. He may be the best option to pick up until Johnson returns from his injury.
