David Johnson questionable to return from wrist injury vs. Lions

Cardinals' David Johnson facing up to 12 weeks out with dislocated wrist

Detroit Lions fans have seen some ugly football, but the first quarter of the Lions' 2017 regular season was brutal even by Detroit standards.

The Detroit Lions did not get their season off to a great start.

The sparkling two-touchdown debut of third-round rookie receiver Kenny Golladay, plus the shocking four-takeaway performance of the Lions defense, resulted in 20 unanswered points and a massive 35-17 win.

Vladimir Putin Calls for Talks With North Korea, Not Sanctions
US President Donald Trump has spoken with the leaders of Britain and Australia about North Korea's latest nuclear test. North Korea claims it now has a nuclear warhead that's able to be mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile.

But a missed field goal by Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson, and Stafford's second touchdown pass of the day, kept the game close going into the final quarter.

Also scoring for the Lions were wide receiver Marvin jones Jr. and running back Theo Riddick, who each had a touchdown reception. Detroit's opponent in Week 1 is certain to be hungry to show what they can do as well, after missing out on the playoffs a year after making it to the NFC Championship Game. Running back Ameer Abdullah led the team with 30 yards on 15 carries.

It caused widespread panic across the internet because Johnson, the third-year running back coming off an All-Pro year where he fell just shy of recording more than 1,000 rushing and 1,000 receiving yards, was widely considered a top-three draft pick in fantasy football. This is an area the Lions' must improve on moving forward. With Johnson struggling to find room, the team turned to Carson Palmer, but the veteran quarterback has two interceptions and no touchdowns. Before David Johnson's injury, the Lions did well containing him, too, in part because of smart defense from the front four - Detroit's biggest question entering the season.
