Description: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told ESPN that running back Andre Ellington will keep the same role he had last season before his injury.
Insight: Arizona did address the running back position in the draft, but the team picked Northern Iowa running back David Johnson, who is not a true workhorse. Johnson, like Ellington, is better in the receiving game, so he really will only be Ellington's backup. Hopefully, Ellington can completely recover from his foot injury and produce more than last season. After he averaged 5.5 yards per attempt his rookie season, he only averaged 3.3 yards per attempt in 2014.

Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is almost completely recovered from his foot injury and sports-hernia surgery, according to coach Bruce Arians.
Insight: There has been much speculation about the Cardinals being interested in the Vikings' Adrian Peterson, but given his age and high salary it's more likely Arizona features a soon-to-be healthy Ellington with a talented rookie draft pick backing him up.
 
12/5/2014 2:59:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington made it a clean sweep of missed practices and has been ruled out for Week 14.
Insight: Marion Grice, Stepfan Taylor and Michael Bush will share the load, but we think Taylor gets the first shot.
 
12/1/2014 4:38:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is dealing with a hip pointer, and the injury is not believed to be serious.
Insight: Ellington could return for Week 14, with Week 15 being the latest he should return by. Look for him to miss practice on Wednesday, with Thursday's and Friday's sessions being important on whether Ellington is able to suit up on Sunday.
 
Cold11/30/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington left Sunday's game against Atlanta due to a hip injury and is not expected to return.
Insight: Marion Grice is the next man up with newly-signed Michael Bush inactive.
 
Cold11/24/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: It's officially time to be concerned about Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot).
Insight: Ellington rushed 10 times for 24 yards and caught five balls for 39 yards. We don't like the way things are trending of late.
 
Cold11/17/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) produced weak totals for the second consecutive weekend.
Insight: Ellington rushed 19 times for 42 yards and caught four balls for 24 yards. We don't like the way things are trending of late.
 
11/14/2014 4:39:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) is probable for Week 11 against the Lions.
Insight: Ellington was limited in practice all week, but it will not hold him back from starting Sunday. He will be a borderline RB1 against the solid run-defense of Detroit.
 
11/10/2014 10:09:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington couldn't get much going this weekend.
Insight: Ellington's foot issue didn't appear to be a factor, but in 23 touches he amassed just 42 yards. He did run one in from three yards out, so fantasy owners did get double-digit points.
 
11/2/2014 5:14:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is the definition of a workhorse back.
Insight: Fantasy owners got a scare before the season started with Ellington's foot issue. He has rarely been limited in any game. In Week 9 against the Cowboys, he had 25 touches, gained 134 yards and scored.
 
11/2/2014 11:39:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Insight: That's not really anything new. Backup running back Stepfan Taylor, however, is inactive, so Ellington's chances of scoring go up. Not that that really should effect any lineups as Ellington should be starting in all leagues.
 
10/27/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Ellington is usually also involved in the passing game, but he wasn't a big part in this one which limited his fantasy value.
 
10/23/2014 11:51:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (partial tendon tear) says his foot isn't going to feel better until after the season is over., according to Cardinals reporter Mike Jurecki.
Insight: Ellington's injury isn't hurting his workload, he's averaging 26 touches and 108 combined yards per game, but he's only averaging 3.7 ypc in 2014 versus 5.5 ypc last season.
 
10/22/2014 3:57:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (ribs, foot) was limited during Wednesday's practice session.
Insight: There does not seem to be any issues with Ellington's injuries, putting him on track to be an RB1 this weekend against the Eagles.
 
10/20/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington saw another full workload, rushing 24 times and seeing nine targets.
Insight: Ellington rushed for 88 yards (3.7 ypc) and caught six for 72 yards, but failed to get into the end zone. Fantasy owners love the workload as long as his foot injury doesn't get any worse. They can't be happy that backup RB Stepfan Taylor scored twice.
 
10/13/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington saw another full workload.
Insight: Ellington rushed for 67 yards on 19 carries and caught six balls, but for just 26 yards.
 
10/10/2014 5:31:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is a solid RB1 despite the quarterback situation in Arizona.
Insight: Ellington probably sees his stock rise because third-string quarterback Logan Thomas might start. The Redskins defense hasn't allowed many fantasy points to opposing backs this year, but they did allowed 225 rushing yards to Seattle at home. Ellington should see more than 20 touches on Sunday.
 
10/8/2014 8:06:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington was limited in Wednesday's practice because of his foot.
Insight: Ellington has not fully practiced all season because of his foot, so this really isn't a concern. Washington is a tough matchup, but Marshawn Lynch gained over 100 yards of offense and caught a touchdown pass, so Ellington is a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.
 
10/6/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington couldn't get anything going in the running game, but his pass-catching skills saved fantasy owners.
Insight: Ellington rushed 16 times for just 32 yards, but caught four balls for 112 yards, including an 81-yard catch and run for a score. That's the advantage of having a RB who is also part of the passing packages.
 
9/14/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington continues to produce despite the bad foot.
Insight: He received 16 touches and put up 101 total yards. It would have been a better day save for a touchdown vulture by Jonathan Dwyer.
