Cardinals RB David Johnson injured his wrist in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game in Baltimore and is officially questionable to return. A wrist injury cost him almost all of 2017, although it's unclear if this is related. We'll update Johnson's status when we learn more. RB Chase Edmonds is Arizona's backup.

Update: Johnson returned in the 2nd quarter. Exhale.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. The back issue obviously adds risk to his Week 6 outlook. Arizona might scale back his volume a bit, and there’s a chance the back locks up on him again. But D.J. retains RB1 upside in this plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to play against the Falcons today -- "barring a setback" -- despite the back injury that rendered him questionable. An active Johnson belongs in fantasy lineups against the defense that allowed 53 points to the Texans a week ago. Chase Edmonds can still be a deeper PPR option, but last week marked the 1st time this season he collected more than 6 touches.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. Johnson told reporters that he felt good in Friday’s practice but will be a game-time decision. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, meanwhile, hears that D.J. is “likely” to play. Cardinals-Falcons doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, but we’ll look for an update on Johnson Sunday morning. Chase Edmonds will operate as Arizona’s feature back if Johnson doesn’t play.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said in a Friday morning radio appearance that there's "a chance" RB David Johnson (back) plays against the Falcons this weekend. "I'm not 100 percent sure, but I'm certainly encouraged," Keim said. Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday and seems legitimately questionable for Sunday's game. We'll get another update on his status this afternoon.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) missed practice again on Thursday. As HC Kliff Kingsbury told us, Johnson is in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Falcons. His absence would leave Chase Edmonds as a strong fantasy play as Arizona's lead back in a plus matchup.
