  • Johnson (groin) will seek out the best fit as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports. "I feel at this point in my career if it's not a situation where a team wants to bring me in to be a starter, I definitely need to be somewhere where I have a role," Johnson said on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday. "I need to be involved. At this point in my career, I don't want to sit on the sideline. I want to get in the game." After back-to-back injury-altered campaigns with the Cardinals, Johnson sees the writing on the wall in a backfield populated by a workhorse like David Johnson, who handled 73.4 percent (293 of 399) of the team's carries in 2016. At this point in the former's career, he won't contribute much, if anything, as a pass catcher, so a between-the-tackles gig is likely at the top of his list. Johnson will be entering his age-32 season in the fall, so landing atop a depth chart out of the gate isn't really in the cards. Rather, a complementary role could be his best-case scenario, whether he sticks in Arizona or heads elsewhere.

  • Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Won't return this season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (groin) won't return this season, as the Cardinals have cleared Tyvon Branch (groin) to practice, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Among players placed on injured reserve, each team can designate just one for activation, and the Cardinals have made their choice due to need. With David Johnson regularly churning out 100 yards from scrimmage on a weekly basis, the elder Johnson would merely be an accessory, while Branch would bolster the back end of the defense. An unrestricted free agent in the offseason, Chris Johnson may have played his last down with the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Candidate to return
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (groin) is eligible to return to practice this week, but a decision on whether to bring him back has not yet been made, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website reports. Johnson landed on injured reserve after needing sports hernia surgery in early October. Although he's now sat out long enough to be eligible to rejoin his teammates in practice, the Cardinals have yet to determine which one player they'll welcome back from IR. With safety Tyvon Branch (groin) another candidate for that designation, it remains to be seen if Johnson will factor back into the equation this season, so his fantasy stock remains on ice until further notice.

  • Johnson (groin), who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, is having surgery to repair a sports hernia, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Even when surgery is required, sports hernias aren't necessarily season-ending injuries, with players often able to return after approximately two months. Interestingly enough, safety Tyvon Branch is having the same procedure, and he was also placed on injured reserve Tuesday. The Cardinals will evaluate both players' progress, with one of the two likely to eventually return from injured reserve, after a minimum stay of eight weeks. Johnson may be the more familiar name to most NFL fans, but Branch has arguably been more important to the team this season. With the elder Johnson out of the picture, David Johnson will have a bet less competition for carries, though his teammate's presence wasn't having much impact on the second-year runner in any case. Andre Ellington, Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor will provide depth.

  • Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Placed on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. While each team can bring one player back from injured reserve after a minimum stay of eight weeks, it isn't entirely clear that Johnson is a candidate, as the Cardinals are also placing safety Tyvon Branch on IR with a groin injury. Branch has arguably been a more important contributor than (Chris) Johnson so far, but the two players' relative value would change in a hurry if David Johnson were to suffer an injury. In any case, the younger Johnson will now be backed up by Andre Ellington, Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor, with Ellington easily carrying the most appeal as a handcuff.
