David Johnson Won't Return from Wrist Injury Until at Least Thanksgiving

The Arizona Cardinals will have to remain without their All-Pro running back for a while longer.

Head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that the "earliest" David Johnson could return is Thanksgiving, according to Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Johnson has been out since the first game of the season with a wrist injury, and the latest timeline means he will be off the field until at least Week 12.

The original projection from the wrist surgery was two to three months, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, although Arians wasn't as confident.
