The fantasy football community continues to agonize over the loss of David Johnson.

The Arizona Cardinals running back was likely the first or second pick in fantasy drafts around the globe, but after dislocating his left wrist in Week 1, Johnson is likely to miss two-to-three months of action.

While fantasy managers are scrambling to cope with his absence, the real-life superstar couldn't care less.

"No, no, that's the last thing," Johnson said Wednesday, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN. "Fantasy is the last thing on my mind right now."

Besides recovering in time to make an impact late in the Cardinals' season, Johnson has other priorities to tend to, including his 8-month-old son.

"I can't really carry him," he said of holding his child while wearing a cast. "I get nervous. He's starting to get a little more squirmy, so it's hard to carry him; and my wife, she doesn't really trust me carrying him. That's probably the toughest thing."
