Wt at 5.8 lbs & 19.25 inches. #NewParents 👶🏽 pic.twitter.com/7Ag8fJLYbo— David Johnson (@DavidJohnson31) January 15, 2017David Jr. came earlier than expected. Meghan was scheduled to give birth closer to the Pro Bowl, which will be played on Jan. 29 in Orlando. That threatened the new father’s expected first appearance in the game, but Johnson’s Week 17 MCL injury against the Los Angeles Rams ended his hopes of playing in it. congats guys. Very awesome!!!!!!!!!!!— AQ Shipley (@aqshipley) January 15, 2017Johnson put together a stellar 2016 campaign with 15 straight games of 100 or more yards from scrimmage, tying an NFL record. He amassed 1,239 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground to go with 879 receiving yards and four more scores in his second NFL season.As for the knee injury that put a scare into the Cardinals to end a disappointing 7-8-1 season, Johnson did not require surgery and from the injury on Jan. 1 should be back in action within six to eight weeks.
