Cardinals' Jaron Brown: Hyperextends knee Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown hyperextended his left knee during Sunday's 16-13 overtime victory at Indianapolis, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

En route to four receptions (on 11 targets) for 73 yards by game's end, Brown suffered the injury when Colts safety Matthias Farley happened to fall on his knee in the fourth quarter. After stating the region was sore Monday, he also admitted his fortune that "it wasn't any more serious," as the knee endured a torn ACL last October. The Cardinals have a longer week than normal with a Monday night matchup against the Cowboys on tap, meaning Brown's health likely won't be touched on again until the team's first Week 3 injury report is released Thursday.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: May be named starting RB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bruce Arians is unsure if he'll name Johnson the starting running back for Week 3 versus the Cowboys, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

In the first game without David Johnson (wrist), the elder Johnson received the third-most snaps among Cardinals running backs, handling 17 versus 30 for Andre Ellington and 18 for Kerwynn Williams. That said, Johnson was the most effective with his reps, as he doubled up Williams in terms of rushing yards (44 to 22) and seemed to find running lanes that Williams and Ellington could not. If Johnson is named the starter, his track record in the offense over two-plus seasons (59.6 yards per game and four touchdowns across 16 contests) makes him an interesting RB to consider.

Cardinals' John Brown: Unlikely to play in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bruce Arians doesn't believe Brown (quadriceps) will be able to suit up in Week 3 against the Cowboys, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports. "It would have to be miraculous," Arians said Monday.

If Brown logs a second DNP in a row next Monday, he'll actually miss more games than a season ago, when his sickle-cell trait was first discovered. There's no telling when he'll receive clearance to take the practice field again, but until he does, he won't be a candidate to suit up for game day. During his absence, J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown will augment the passing attack behind clear-cut No. 1 option Larry Fitzgerald.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Leading rusher in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson got 11 carries for 44 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the Colts.

Johnson led Arizona in carries while doubling Kerwynn Williams' output on the ground. The offense struggled to consistently move the ball with star running back David Johnson (wrist) sitting, so goal-line opportunities could be few and far between in the coming weeks. With that in mind, the backfield trio of Johnson, Williams and Andre Ellington is unlikely to produce many noteworthy individual performances.

Cardinals' Jaron Brown: Eleven targets in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown turned a team-high 11 targets into four catches for 73 yards in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the Colts.

Brown was quiet in Week 1 despite starting on the outside, but got significantly more volume in this one with John Brown (quad) sitting. While fellow wide receiver J.J. Nelson starred with 120 yards and the team's lone touchdown, quarterback Carson Palmer got enough attempts to produce multiple strong performances from Arizona's receiving corps as the team never led until converting the game-winning field goal in overtime. With veteran Larry Fitzgerald operating primarily in the slot, the two Browns and Nelson should rotate on the outside when healthy.
