Cardinals RB David Johnson fumbles, doesn't get another touch

It’s clear Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson is not the same player he was in 2016.

After a fumble in the 30-27 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he didn’t get another touch. Johnson, once a staple of the offense, was not on the field during crunch time.

Instead, newcomer Kenyan Drake, just two games into his Cardinals career, was the one who got a handoff out of the shotgun on the first play of the final drive of the game.

The story added when Edmonds returns, Johnson's role will be a huge question, as if it's not already. Johnson doesn't exactly look like a safe play heading into Week 11 even if Edmonds has to sit again.
