David Johnson expected to miss an extended period of time

David Johnson RB

If that is the case, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that it is possible Johnson could miss no time at all. ESPN's Adam Schefter backed up a report from Chris Mortensen on Monday, stating the injury could keep him out for a couple weeks or four months, depending on the recommendations from his doctors.

Arians says the injury occurred late in the third quarter of Sunday's 35-23 loss at Detroit, when Johnson was hit hard after a catch at the Lions' 3-yard line.

However, that quartet of running backs will have to get their legs ready.

Williams carried the ball five times for 10 yards, including a touchdown, in Johnson's absence at Detroit.

Players with the ability to gain 100 all-purpose yards each and every week, seemingly at will, are not easy to find; hence, Johnson's value to the offense.

Replacing Johnson is easier said than done for your fantasy football squad.

Air Berlin Cancels More Long-haul Routes
Air Berlin announced on Monday that it would end its flights to the Caribbean from Düsseldorf beginning September 24. One source has told Reuters that Lufthansa is interested in as many as 90 of Air Berlin's planes.

Up to that point in the game there hadn't been too much to write home about Johnson's performance. They're huge shoes. But the running backs behind Johnson on the depth chart feel they're prepared to take on Johnson's workload. "Once our brother's down, we got to make up for his slack".

Palmer said, "I don't think I got in a rhythm with my feet".

"To have the lead going into the fourth quarter", he said, "we should win the game". Last year's knee injury for Johnson came in the season finale.

With Jordan Matthews getting hurt in his first practice following the trade, and E.J. Gaines now dealing with a shoulder contusion, Sammy Watkins is the healthiest player from the Bills' pair of blockbuster preseason trades. While that number is nowhere near the best in the league, it is an improvement over the 176 rushing yards they gave up to Carolina during Week 2 last season.

Johnson is expected to miss at least eight weeks with a dislocated wrist.

Re-signing Chris Johnson, who was cut on September 2, could be an option, Arians said.
