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.

Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) will continue to miss practices while dealing with the injury, but unless we hear differently we will expect him to play on Sunday.
Insight: He received 16 touches and put up 101 total yards in Week 2. It would have been a better day save for a touchdown vulture by Jonathan Dwyer.
 
9/11/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is pleased with the way running back Andre Ellington's foot responded to Monday night's 18 touches.
Insight: "A lot less sore than he though he was going to be," Arians said according to azcardinals.com. "It's much better than we hoped." Elllington missed practice on Wednesday, but he should get limited reps by Friday. As long as Arians keeps feeding Ellington the ball, which he should, plug Ellington into your lineup.
 
9/9/2014 3:36:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) survived Week 1 without his foot inury getting any worse.
Insight: He's back in a walking boot as he tries to get ready for Week 2. Ellington admitted he wasn't as quick as normal. "I had some quickness going from right to left, but it was a little harder going from left to right," he said after the game. Fantasy owners who jumped on Jonathan Dwyer came up empty in Week 1.
 
9/8/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) is active for the season opener.
Insight: Despite all the rumors, including one that had him out 4-6 weeks, Ellington is in the lineup. He will likely be limited in some capacity so fantasy owners should start someone else if possible.
 
9/8/2014 2:45:00 PM
Description: XTRA 910 Arizon'a Mike Jurecki reports the Cardinals plan to work out Andre Ellington (foot) "hours before kickoff".
Insight: It appears Ellington is a true game-time dicision. If you were still planning on starting Ellington, running back Jonathan Dwyer is really your only other option. Even if Ellington plays, he will likely be limited in some capacity. Start someone else if possible.
 
9/6/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: The latest rumor out of Arizona has Cardinals running back Andre Ellington not needing surgery after being examined by multiple doctors and possibly even playing Monday night, according to beat reporter Darren Urban.
Insight: Ellington's status for Week 1 is up in the air. The problem for fantasy owners is that it's the last game of the weekend and unless you have Jonathan Dwyer as a handcuff, you won't have many options should he not play.
 
9/5/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington was given an MRI after aggravating a foot issue and "could be out extended period of time," according to talk show host Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 in Arizona.
Insight: Ellington's status for Week 1, appears to be up in the air. Ellington had foot issues back at Clemson too. Backup Jonathan Dwyer can't do the things Ellington can do when healthy. This will require extensive follow up as we head into Week 1.
 
9/4/2014 5:52:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington was limited in Thursday's practice with a foot issue.
Insight: It's likely a minor ailment and at this point, fantasy owners don't have to worry about Ellington's status for Week 1, but it is something to monitor. Ellington had injury issues back at Clemson. Arizona also plays on Monday night, so owners might be pressured into making a decision a day before his game.
 
8/13/2014 4:03:00 PM
Description: The Arizona Republic says the the Cardinals "would like to get the ball to (Andre Ellington) 20 or so times a game, but want to limit his carries inside the tackles."
Insight: Ellington is 5-foot-9 and roughly 200 pounds, but Jamaal Charles isn't much bigger and he has held up to the pounding over the past two seasons. Ellington is ticketed for 4-6 catches and 13-15 rushes per game and he also has been getting first-team reps in the red zone. He could easily outperform his third-round ADP.
 
7/25/2014 7:58:00 PM
Description: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said that Andre Ellington is ready to be the "bell cow" in Arizona's offense, according to Darren Urban of azcardinals.com.
Insight: Arizona coach Bruce Arians said in May that he expects Ellington to get 25-30 touches per game this season, which was an outrageous exaggeration. However, we may see him get 16-18, with 4-6 coming on receptions. GM Steve Keim estimated Thursday that Ellington has put on 8-10 pounds, which could take away some of his explosiveness. Ellington is going 15th among running backs at an ADP of 29.9, which is a good spot for him because he's not guaranteed to see goal-line work.
 
6/29/2014 4:09:00 PM
Description: Darren Urban from the Cardinals official website predicts Andre Ellington will get 20-22 touches per game.
Insight: Arizona coach Bruce Arians said last month that he expects Ellington to get 25-30 touches per game this season, which was an outrageous exaggeration, and it would be shocking if he averaged 20-22 touches per game as Urban is projecting. It would put the 5-foot-9 running back in the 320-350 territory, which would be close to what Marshawn Lynch, Jamaal Charles, Matt Forte and LeSean McCoy saw last season. Ellington will likely be closer to 15 touches per game than 22.
 
5/27/2014 3:27:00 PM
Description: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday that Andre Ellington is the team's No. 1 back and expects him to get 25-30 touches per game, according to Mike Jurecki of foxsports910.com.
Insight: The Cardinals keep publicly wavering on Ellington's role for 2014 -- first GM Steve Keim said that the team planned to use a multi-back offense, then Arians said the Cardinals want to build the offense around Ellington, then the coach said the team would monitor his workload and now he's projecting him to get 400-480 touches. Keep in mind LeSean McCoy led the NFL with 366 touches in 2013 and that Ellington is 5-foot-9 and 199 pounds. Look for the 25-year-old to actually get between 250-275 touches (200-220 carries, 40-60 catches).
 
12/22/2013 2:46:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington suffered a thigh bruise that kept him off the field in overtime last weekend, but he's active for Week 16.
Insight: Ellington is the more explosive of the two Cardinals running backs. He had 158 yards from scrimmage last week versus Tennessee.
 
12/16/2013 9:39:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington suffered a thigh bruise that kept him off the field in overtime, but says it isn't too serious, according to the Cardinals' website.
Insight: Ellington didn't get into the end zone, but did combine for 158 yards from scrimmage. He will continue to share time with Rashard Mendenhall, though he is the more explosive half of the duo.
 
12/8/2013 3:25:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (knee) is active for Sunday's game with St. Louis.
Insight: Ellington will continue to share time with Rashard Mendenhall, though he is the more explosive half of the duo.
 
12/5/2013 2:35:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (knee) returned to limited practice Thursday, according to beat reporter Darren Urban
Insight: Ellington should be considered questionable for Week 14 against the Rams until he at least gets in one full practice.
 
12/1/2013 6:38:00 PM
Description: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said running back Andre Ellington (knee) was never close to playing Sunday, according to beat writer Darren Urban.
Insight: That refutes pre-game reports that suggested Ellington would play if he could get through warmups without a setback. Ellington should be considered highly questionable for Week 14 against the Rams.
 
12/1/2013 12:09:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (knee) will not play Sunday against the Eagles.
Insight: Ellington hurt his knee during Thursday's practice. He was reportedly going to play if he could avoid a setback during warmups, but he won't be active. Rashard Mendenhall should get most of the carries and is a decent flex option.
 
12/1/2013 10:41:00 AM
Description: According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (knee) will play Sunday against the Eagles if he can avoid a setback during warmups.
Insight: Ellington hurt his knee during Thursday's practice, which could limit his explosiveness. As long as Rashard Mendenhall is healthy, Ellington's touches will be kept around 10-12 per game.
