The Cardinals have placed RB Chris Johnson (groin) on IR. It's unclear if he's done for the season or has a chance to return in 8 weeks, but he can be dropped from all fantasy rosters. Johnson had stolen 25 carries from David Johnson through the season's first 4 games. Andre Ellington will step in as Arizona's #2 RB and is worth rostering in deep leagues.

Cardinals RB Chris Johnson hurt his groin in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams. He collapsed as soon as the injury happened and was in obvious pain. We'll look for an update on Johnson's status after the game.

The Cardinals re-signed RB Chris Johnson to a 1-year deal. CJ showed last season that he still has some juice left, posting 814 yards on 196 carries (4.2 YPC).  Unfortunately, he broke his leg in Week 12. He also turns 31 in September. The former Titan will need an injury to workhorse David Johnson to gain fantasy relevance.

The Cardinals have placed RB Chris Johnson (leg) on IR-designated-for-return.  He's not eligible to play unless Arizona makes the Super Bowl.  The Cardinals will move forward with RBs David Johnson, Stepfan Taylor and Kerwynn Williams.  RB Andre Ellington is week-to-week with turf toe.

Cardinals insider Mike Jurecki reports that RB Chris Johnson (leg) is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.  That knocks him out for the rest of the regular season and makes him iffy for the playoffs.  With RB Andre Ellington dealing with turf toe, Arizona is left with RBs David Johnson and Stepfan Taylor.  Johnson will lead the way and will be a good bet for 15+ touches per game going forward.  It makes the rookie a RB2 with upside.
