While there has been no official word from the team, longtime Arizona Cardinals beat writer Kent Somers have fans a small hope that everything is alright with star running back David Johnson:
From what I’m hearing, David Johnson’s injury, whatever it is, is not serious.— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) June 8, 2018
Again, no word from the team, but whatever is ailing David Johnson is not believed to be serious.
This is obviously something to continue to watch not just for this season, but for the future of Johnson and the Cardinals.
Johnson is coming up on free agency, but has finished the last two seasons with different injuries. The question about his ability to stay healthy, fair or not, will undoubtedly come up now as the Cardinals figure out Johnson’s contract heading into 2019 and beyond.
With Johnson likely to be the focal point of the offense this season, health will be key for not only a successful offense, but for the Cardinals to want to invest in Johnson.
That’s another discussion for another day, but for now, we know David Johnson’s ailment is minor, at least that is what is being reported.
