Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson could be out a while after injuring his wrist in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Sunday night that Johnson could "miss a "few weeks" or 'half the season or more.'" Adam Schefter of ESPN noted later on Monday that surgery is still possible for Johnson.

There is an immediate positive sign as the x-rays performed on the injury have already come back negative with no breaks or fractures.

He is coming off his first full season as the starter where he racked up 1,239 rushing yards with 16 touchdowns along with 80 catches for 879 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington are the primary running backs in Johnson's absence.

Up to that point in the game there hadn't been too much to write home about Johnson's performance.

Before getting injured Sunday, Johnson was on his way to having a nice game. According to multiple reports, he could miss anywhere from two weeks to several months.

Backup offensive lineman John Wetzel replaced Humphries. If Humphries' injury was more long term, the team might consider moving Jared Veldheer back to left tackle from the right side.

As far the game goes, Arians blamed the loss on his best players.
