Internet Reacts to David Johnson’s Dislocated Wrist (TWEETS)
Ever since David Johnson was forced to leave the Arizona Cardinals’ game against the Detroit Lions yesterday due to a wrist injury, the fantasy world has been holding their collective breath. We’ve all been waiting for some news regarding the status of fantasy football’s hottest commodity, and today we got it.
And it does not sound good.
The latest reports state that Johnson suffered a dislocated wrist and will likely need surgery. With his recovery timetable expected to be anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks, the Cardinals have also said that a trip to the IR is likely.
Sources: #AZCardinals RB David Johnson (wrist) is expected to miss an extended period of time. Getting more opinions, but an IR candidate.

So there you have it. The number one draft pick in most fantasy football drafts this season, pretty much done for the year after only half a game. Needless to say, the internet had some thoughts about this.
Here’s what they had to say:
