Just like he did with the Colts, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians doesn't think the Cowboys' offense will change if running back Ezekiel Elliott doesn't play Monday night. "It doesn't matter," Arians said. "They're not changing what they do. Just like the (Colts') quarterbacks last week. Whoever that running back is, they're not putting in a different offense."

David Johnson: Fantasy 'last thing on my mind'

David Johnson talked to the media on Wednesday for the first time since suffering a dislocated wrist in Week 1, saying he doesn't have a timetable for his return and isn't worried about the fantasy teams whose seasons are lost due to his injury.

Cardinals receiver J.J. Nelson has been the most added player in ESPN Fantasy Football this week. He was on teams in 10.3 percent of leagues last week and is on teams in 36.7 percent of leagues as of Wednesday -- that's a 26.4 percent increase, almost 9 percent higher than the second-most added player this week, Baltimore running back Javorius Allen.

Cardinals running back David Johnson, who spoke Wednesay for the first time since dislocating his left wrist in Week 1, said Seattle's Tyler Lockett, Detroit's Ameer Abdullah, the Los Angeles Rams' Todd Gurley and Miami's Jay Ajayi all reached out to him to offer words of support, tell him to keep his head up and to keep pushing through the injury, surgery and rehab.

Injured Cardinals running back David Johnson was asked today if he's worried about all the fantasy football teams that had him: "No, no, that's the last thing. Fantasy is the last thing on my mind right now."

Cardinals running back David Johnson spoke to the media today for the first time since he dislocated his left wrist in Week 1. He said he doens't have a timeline to return. "Really just see how it goes," Johnson said. "Just rehab, obviously, after the cast and everything. We'll see how it goes."

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said "there is a chance" that ILB Deone Bucannon can play Monday night. Bucannon, who had ankle surgery before OTAs, has not made his 2017 debut as he continues to recover from a setback to his ankle, which he sprained in his first practice back from surgery on Aug. 22.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians is still discouraged by the prospect of WR John Brown playing Monday night: "I have to see him run before I can get encouraged."

The Cardinals had a walk-through today, instead of a regular practice, since they have an extra day with "Monday Night Football." Arizona will wear pads in Thursday's practice. "It was a very, very good learning day," coach Bruce Arians said. "I think it was a good start to the week as far as getting used to a little bit different offense and, obviously, a very different defense that they play that we've been seeing."

Both TE Jermaine Gresham and ILB Deone Bucannon were in pads. Neither played Sunday in Indy.

Cardinals receiver Jaron Brown, who tore his left ACL last season, said he hyperextended the same knee late in the fourth quarter against the Colts when safet Matthias Farley fell on his left knee. Brown said the knee was sore Monday. "Fortunately it wasn't any more serious," he said. "It was kind of a scary moment. I was able to get back up and walk around on it."

Power Rankings: Cardinals slip a spot despite win

Arizona began the preseason in our top 10, but a disastrous Week 1 and unconvincing victory over the Colts in Week 2 has the Cardinals nearing the bottom 10.

The Cardinals released TE Jim Dray. He signed with them on Friday and played in Indianapolis on Sunday. Could be a sign that Jermaine Gresham's ribs are improving.
