David Johnson breaks out in Cards debut

After being sidelined with a hamstring injury, Arizona Cardinals rookie RB David Johnson impressed in his NFL debut against the San Diego Chargers.

Arizona Cardinals rookie RB David Johnson's debut was worth the wait.

Johnson had been sidelined due to a hamstring injury and the third-round pick from Northern Iowa had yet to see the field until the Cardinals' second preseason game against the San Diego Chargers.

While Arizona GM Steve Keim brought in another Johnson, Chris, David was the one who stole the headlines after this weekend.

Johnson racked up 66 yards on 13 carries and looked like the dynamic, powerful runner that the Cardinals are in desperate need for.

In addition, Johnson showed his promise as a receiver catching both of his targets out of the backfield.

Johnson will almost certainly start the season behind Andre Ellington on the depth chart, but if his performance on Saturday was any indication on what he has to offer, Johnson could be a major contributor for Arizona in 2015.
