​An ill-fated injury hit the Arizona Cardinals in Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, as running back David Johnson suffered a dislocated wrist. The star running back was expected to build off of his incredible 2016 campaign, but that's on hold for now.

He's going to miss some time after undergoing surgery.

The team just re-signed Chris Johnson, who will likely get the bulk of the carries in Week 2's matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. Other running backs that will play are rookie Kerwynn Williams, Andre Ellington, Elijhaa Penny, and former Patriot D.J. Foster.

David Johnson just had surgery on his wrist, and it has been announced that he would be out for 2-3 months. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians may have just let the world know that his star player will be out longer than that initial diagnosis.

Yep, that's longer than three months, and that's not good for the Cards.

Chris Johnson played in just four games last year due to a groin injury, and the season before, he was the league's leading rusher with 814 yards before fracturing his tibia in Week 12. He didn't miss a game before 2015 due to injuries, and currently sits with 9,537 career rushing yards.

The Cardinals have a tough obstacle to climb by losing David Johnson, but they hope that the accumulation of five other running backs will help them get through the season before Johnson comes back.
