Cardinals give CJ opportunity to reach 10K

The Cardinals have been in a situation like this before, Arians said. Under NFL rules, David Johnson would be eligible to come off IR in eight weeks, which coincides with the Cardinals' bye.

Arians said Johnson could return around Christmas. He said Tuesday night that Johnson is scheduled to have surgery this week to fix his wrist, which was injured during Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions. Then Ellington got hurt early in the year, and then Chris Johnson got hurt in Week 12, paving the way for David Johnson. Williams finished with five carries for 10 yards and a touchdown.

While many believe the Cardinals' postseason chances are all but gone because of losing their best player, if they can stay in the mix or even earn a playoff berth, Johnson's return could give them fresh legs for a postseason run.

Arians called the loss of David Johnson "a huge blow" but "not the end of the world".

Chris Johnson, who missed almost all of last season with a knee injury, rushed for 814 yards for Arizona two years ago.

The coach had planned to get David Johnson 30 touches a game.

The fourth-year player led the Cardinals with 1,239 yards rushing and a conference-leading 16 rushing touchdowns in 2016. Last season, David Johnson led the National Football League in yards from scrimmage and touchdowns.
