Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds leaves game with hamstring injury

The Arizona Cardinals entered Sunday’s matchup already down their starting running back in David Johnson.

The running back situation went from bad to worse against the New Orleans Saints as running back Chase Edmonds left the game with a hamstring injury.

In the third quarter, Edmonds went to pick up the blitz, getting hit by a Saints defender in the process. The running back managed to make it off the field under his own power, but was noticeably limping to the sideline.

Fantasy Impact: 

Zenner was left as the only active RB after Edmonds left the game. The Cards play on Thursday night against the 49ers in Week 9, and Adam Schefter reported Johnson wouldn't be ready for that game either on a short week, and now it looks like Edmonds may be a huge question for that game as well. Morris and Zenner would get the workload in what would be a very tough matchup.
