Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Having surgery for sports hernia
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson (groin), who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, is having surgery to repair a sports hernia, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Even when surgery is required, sports hernias aren't necessarily season-ending injuries, with players often able to return after approximately two months. Interestingly enough, safety Tyvon Branch is having the same procedure, and he was also placed on injured reserve Tuesday. The Cardinals will evaluate both players' progress, with one of the two likely to eventually return from injured reserve after a minimum stay of eight weeks. Johnson may be the more familiar name to most NFL fans, but Branch has arguably been more important to the team this season. With the elder Johnson out of the picture, David Johnson will have a bit less competition for carries, though his teammate's presence wasn't having much impact on the second-year runner in any case. Andre Ellington, Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor will provide depth.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

While each team can bring one player back from injured reserve after a minimum stay of eight weeks, it isn't entirely clear that Johnson is a candidate, as the Cardinals are also placing safety Tyvon Branch on IR with a groin injury. Branch has arguably been a more important contributor than Johnson so far, but the two players' relative value would change in a hurry if David Johnson were to suffer an injury. In any case, the younger Johnson will now be backed up by Andre Ellington, Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor, with Ellington easily carrying the most appeal as a handcuff.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Doesn't practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson (groin) didn't take part in Monday's practice, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

The manner in which Johnson went to the ground Sunday was worrisome, to say the least, so the fact he's dealing with a groin concern was welcome news. Nevertheless, the Cardinals have three days to prepare for Thursday's contest at San Francisco, making a complete rehab difficult to comprehend. In order to fill the potential void in the backfield, the team has re-signed Kerwynn Williams to serve as a depth RB option behind starter David Johnson and primary reserve (for now) Andre Ellington.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Sustains groin injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson sustained a groin injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams and is questionable to return, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

After making nary an impact in Weeks 1 and 3, the Cardinals were making an attempt to establish Johnson on the ground Sunday, but on his sixth carry of the contest, he appeared to suffer a potential non-contact injury while attempt to cut. As a result, the diagnosis of a groin concern should induce a sigh of relief, though his status will be one to watch closely this week. An absence in Week 5 would push Andre Ellington into the backup RB role to lead back David Johnson.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Picks up three snaps in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson picked up three of the Cardinals' 82 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss at Buffalo.

When the Cardinals have faced daunting tasks in Weeks 1 and 3, Johnson has rarely been used, as evidenced by three carries for seven yards on five total snaps. During the Week 2 beatdown of the Buccaneers, though, he was afforded plenty of run to the tune of 16 rushes for 54 yards and a touchdown. The sole constant in the backfield this season has been standout sophomore David Johnson, who currently sits third overall in terms of yards from scrimmage with 386, including 217 on the ground. Outside of the blowout, the senior Johnson has so far been a distant second to David in the RB pecking order in Arizona.
