News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 13): Johnson is scheduled to get his cast off on Monday, November 13, and as long as that happens, he could return as soon as Week 12. As long as the Cardinals can win at Houston, the team will be 5-5 and very much alive for the postseason. He shouldn't be on any waiver wires.

General News (Tue Nov 14): announced that the cast on his left wrist was removed Monday, Nov. 13, and he will now begin rehab to restore strength and range of motion. Johnson has previously said that he would like to return this season "no matter the team's record."

Week 11: at Houston Texans

All RB vs HOU

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Cardinals have been a roller coaster ride with their running game since the acquisition of Adrian Peterson. In the four games since acquiring him, they have had two games where Peterson had 130 or more yards and two games where Peterson had less than 30 yards and averaged less than two yards per carry. One big issue for the Cardinals is not the lack of talent, as they have some very talented guards in Alex Boone and Earl Watford, but the challenge has been production as at times they just do not look like a cohesive unit on the field. The Texans run defense has been one of the best run defenses in football primarily due to the fact that they have only allowed one rushing touchdown this season to running backs. The Texans are only allowing 77 yards per game to opposing running backs and only 96 yards per game which is the seventh best in football. This is a defensive front that is led by JaDeveon Clowney and D.J. Reader both who have been tremendous against the run this season while rookie Zach Cunningham has shown tremendous growth throughout the season which has greatly benefitted this run defense.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 1 vs DET (11 / 23 / 0 rush, 9 / 6 / 68 / 0 rec)

The big news for Cardinals fans and Johnson fantasy owners was the wrist injury the star RB suffered. Reports indicate Johnson's X-Ray was negative, but he'll still have surgery and miss 2-3 months. Before the injury however, Johnson struggled in the season opener. Fumbling twice, Johnson's ball security was an issue all day, and largely was unable to find workable holes through the offensive line that generated no push all afternoon. Johnson's lone big play, a 24-yard reception, came on an exceptional catch off a wheel route, setting up Kerwynn Williams' 3-yard touchdown.
