Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Won't return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) won't return this season, as the Cardinals have cleared Tyvon Branch (groin) to practice, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Among players placed on injured reserve, each team can designate just one for activation, and the Cardinals have made their choice due to need. With David Johnson regularly churning out 100 yards from scrimmage on a weekly basis, the elder Johnson would merely be an accessory, while Branch would bolster the back end of the defense. An unrestricted free agent in the offseason, Chris Johnson may have played his last down with the Cardinals.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Candidate to return
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson (groin) is eligible to return to practice this week, but a decision on whether to bring him back has not yet been made, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website reports.

Johnson landed on injured reserve after needing sports hernia surgery in early October. Although he's now sat out long enough to be eligible to rejoin his teammates in practice, the Cardinals have yet to determine which one player they'll attempt to welcome back from IR. With safety Tyvon Branch (groin) another candidate for that designation, it remains to be seen if Johnson will factor back into the equation this season, so his stock remains on ice until further notice.

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.
