Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Will earn snaps in two-RB sets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is expected to earn snaps when the Cardinals use two running backs this season, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. "We'll have some two-back stuff with he and David back there," head coach Bruce Arians said Friday.

Johnson re-upped with the Cardinals on Thursday, putting him on course for his third season with the organization. The previous two have been abbreviated due to injuries, with sports hernia surgery containing the running back to four games in 2016. His best bet to gather snaps will occur in the aforementioned two-RB sets, as David Johnson will handle nearly all the snaps afforded the position in Arizona. The situation doesn't make the nine-year vet too appealing, but he appears to be the secondary option in the backfield to his younger teammate.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Returns to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals and Johnson agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

After missing just one game through his first seven NFL campaigns, Johnson has managed just 15 appearances the past two years, including four in 2016 due to season-ending surgery to repair a sports hernia. The developments on the health front paved the way for the emergence of David Johnson, who the elder RB will backup in his return to the Cardinals. Due to David Johnson's workhorse nature, expect Chris Johnson to do little more than spell his teammate.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Seeking best fit this offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | Special to CBSSports.com

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 attempt to 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 stock remains on ice until further notice.
