Cards make it official, sign RB Chris Johnson

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Cardinals officially placed running back David Johnson on injured reserve, meaning he will miss at least eight weeks before being eligible to return. He will undergo surgery for a dislocated wrist and is expected to miss 2-3 months.

The team also made the signings of running backs Chris Johnson and D.J. Foster official. Foster was signed off the Patriots practice squad. Chris Johnson was with the Cardinals until they released him Sept. 2.

Fantasy Impact: 

This certainly muddies the Cards RB situation and puts a dent in Williams fantasy upside as eventually both Johnson and Williams will be battling for early down carries. As we stated earlier today, Tarik Cohen and Javorius Allen are now more attractive pickups on your wire.
