Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson has left the season-opener against the Detroit Lions. The team is saying the All-Pro back is dealing with a wrist injury.

Late in the third quarter, Johnson suffered the wrist injury. He did not return to the game, as the Cardinals lost 35-23 to the Lions.

X-rays were negative on his wrist. He’s also expected to undergo an MRI on Monday, as well. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the early diagnosis is a sprained wrist.

Prior to his exit, he had just 23 yards on 11 carries. He also fumbled the ball twice, and lost one of them. He also had six receptions for 68 yards.

He also was beaten up in the game, as he took a bad hit to the ribs and was taken out on the next play in the first half. He was replaced for that play — and later when he did not return — by Kerwynn Williams.
