Number three, that would put Johnson's timetable to return at 14 weeks, which is on the far other side of 8-to-12 weeks.
The earliest Johnson can return this season is during the eighth week. Arians said Johnson was the final cut he made to reduce the roster to 53 players.

Bruce Arians announced Monday afternoon that star running back David Johnson has a dislocated wrist and will probably require surgery.

Running back David Johnson followed it up with a fumble on a reception that fortunately didn't result in a turnover on their next drive. The ground game was never able to gain any traction against the Lions front seven, only mustering 23 yards on 11 carries.
He had set a goal this year of 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 receiving, something only Roger Craig and Marshall Faulk have accomplished in a single season in National Football League history.
