David Johnson questionable to return from wrist damage vs. Lions

22

David Johnson’s hasn’t had an easy start to the 2017 season, and now it includes a wrist injury suffered against the Detroit Lions in Week 1. The Arizona Cardinals ruled the running back questionable to return from the injury.

Prior to the injury, Johnson had just 23 yards rushing on 11 attempts, and the touchdown hawk hadn’t yet found the end zone.

About Johnson
Johnson is a surname of Danish, English, Scottish and Swedish origin. The name itself is a patronym of the given name John, literally meaning “son of John”. The name John derives from Latin Johannes, which is derived through Greek Ἰωάννης Iōannēs from Hebrew יוחנן Yohanan, meaning “Yahweh has favoured”. The name has been extremely popular in Europe since the Christian era as a result of it being given to St John the Baptist, St John the Evangelist and nearly one thousand other Christian saints. Johnson is the ninth most common surname in Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia, second most common in the United States and 154th most common in the world. As a Scottish family name, Johnson is occasionally a variation of Johnston, a habitational name.

About questionable
A question is a linguistic expression used to make a request for information, or the request made using such an expression. The information requested is provided in the form of an answer.
Questions have developed a range of uses that go beyond the simple eliciting of information from another party. Rhetorical questions, for example, are used to make a point, and are not expected to be answered. Many languages have special grammatical forms for questions (for example, in the English sentence “Are you happy?”, the inversion of the subject you and the verb are shows it to be a question rather than a statement). However, questions can also be asked without using these interrogative grammatical structures – for example one may use an imperative, as in “Tell me your name”.

According to Pro Football Talk, X-rays came up negative for the running back, which is a good early sign for the Cardinals. He’ll have an MRI on Monday, which should reveal the severity of the problem.

Johnson, 25, has been a fantasy owner’s dream come true in his first two seasons in the NFL. After scoring 13 total touchdowns as a rookie, he upped his total to 20 touchdowns in 2016 and earned a spot in the Pro Bowl.

What happens to the Cardinals offense if Johnson can’t return? The Arizona attack has relied heavily on the pass against the Lions so far. With Johnson struggling to find room, the team turned to Carson Palmer, but the veteran quarterback has two interceptions and no touchdowns.

Without Johnson, the team could be even more one-dimensional, unless Kerwynn Williams can find the room that Johnson could not.

Despite the offensive struggles, the Cardinals’ defense has done enough to shut down the Lions’ offense and keep the lead in the hands of Arizona. But losing Johnson for any period of time is a blow.
