Cards HC Bruce Arians added Tuesday that there's "no way in hell" he will play the rookie RB David Johnson early in the season if the former Northern Iowa star misses training camp with hamstring woes.
The Cardinal RBs are banged up and the team offered veteran Chris Johnson a one-year deal. Arians hasn't been happy with the RB performance and the injuries. Ellington, Johnson and Marion Grice have all missed time with injuries. If Johnson accepts Arizona's offer, he will compete with Grice, Stepfan Taylor, Kerwynn Williams and Robert Hughes for snaps behind Ellington, the story said.
