Cardinals' Chris Johnson, Branch placed on injured reserve
Oct 05 2016 by Marjorie Miles
The Cardinals announced on Tuesday that they have placed Johnson on injured reserve due to the groin injury he suffered in last Sunday's loss to the Rams.
The Johnson and Branch moves to the injured reserve are tough, but not unexpected, as both players have battled injuries over their careers, especially recently. Interestingly enough, safety Tyvon Branch is having the same procedure, and he was also placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Chris Johnson had gained 95 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries this season, while Branch had collected 23 tackles and two passes defensed.
The Cardinals waived punter Drew Butler with an injury settlement after he hurt his calf a couple of weeks ago. The team added punter Ryan Quigley.

Arizona was among the league's worst teams in punting average and net punting last season, and Butler had the worst averages of any punter in the league during 2016 prior to his injury.
