Cardinals running back T.J. Logan may not see a chance to factor into his first NFL season. The rookie suffered a dislocated wrist during Thursday’s NFL preseason opener.
Logan will miss approximately 12 weeks, per Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com, and Bruce Arians said he will be placed on IR. The fifth-round pick out of North Carolina will require surgery. Arians said the tentative plan would be to bring back Urban from IR around Week 8.
The NFL again adjusted its IR policy this offseason. Teams can now bring two players off the injured list as opposed to one. This increases Logan’s chances of making a midseason return and salvaging some of his first NFL season. That said, the Cardinals’ situation at running back and their other injury issues could have a large say in that.
Arizona re-signed Chris Johnson recently to play behind David Johnson, and the Cards shuttled Andre Ellington back to running back after a brief wide receiver experiment. The team also has Kerwynn Williams as a backup candidate. Logan was vying for a roster spot in this mix.
