Cardinals RB David Johnson won't report for this weekend's mandatory minicamp, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Johnson is looking for a new contract, with just 1 year and $1.9 million left on his current deal. "There have been discussions regarding a new contract and both sides hopeful," Schefter tweeted. We'll see how this one plays out over the next couple of months. Johnson joins Julio Jones and Earl Thomas as early-summer holdouts.

Cardinals RB David Johnson has received full medical clearance from last year's dislocated wrist, NFL Network reports. Johnson declared himself 100% healthy back in mid-January, so this is just confirmation. The wrist injury that cost him 15 games last year shouldn't be a factor in 2018. A healthy Johnson racked up 2,118 total yards and 20 TDs back in 2016. It'd be super optimistic to expect a repeat of those numbers this season, but Johnson certainly has the potential to top the RB position in fantasy points.

The Cardinals have hired Mike McCoy as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCoy was fired by the Broncos this past November, struggling with a crappy QB situation. That followed a disappointing 4-year stint as Chargers HC, with McCoy compiling a 27-37 record. Three of those 4 squads ranked in the top half of the league in total offense, though, including 5th- and 9th-place finishes. McCoy has shown an ability to morph his offense to fit the personnel, most notably going extremely run-heavy with QB Tim Tebow in Denver back in 2011. We could see a similar attack this coming season. Arizona returns RB David Johnson but has a gaping hole at QB after Carson Palmer's retirement.

Cardinals RB David Johnson's injured wrist is fully healed, he told the team's official website. He missed all but 1 half of the 2017 season with a dislocated wrist, but it won't impact his 2018. The injury essentially granted Johnson a year off -- not insignificant considering he was coming off a 373-touch season. Johnson is still smack dab in his prime at 26 and will remain the focal point of Arizona's offense. The concerns are a new coaching staff and QB heading into 2018.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said Wednesday that neither RB David Johnson (wrist) nor QB Carson Palmer (arm) has made "expected progress" in his rehab. Neither guy is expected to return this season. Both can safely be dropped from redraft rosters.

Injury Predictor

A dislocated wrist ended Johnson's 2017 season in the opener. After surgery, he reported being back to full healthy by January. That followed a 2016 in which Johnson endured 293 carries and 80 receptions before leading Week 17 early with an MCL sprain. Johnson returns to a workhorse role in what figures to be a much weaker Cardinals offense than the 2016 version.
