Cardinals RB Andre Ellington back to full strength
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/18/15) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told reporters Tuesday all of the team's running backs were practicing in full, which included Andre Ellington, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury.
Ellington did play in the preseason opener, totaling 3 yards on three carries and two catches for 59 yards. He opened the scoring Sunday against the Chiefs with a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter.
Cardinals RB Andre Ellington close to 'full speed'
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/13/15) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury during training camp, is nearing "full speed," according to coach Bruce Arians, and may be available to play during Saturday's preseason opener.
Ellington has missed several practices, and the Cardinals running game is in such a flux that the team reportedly offered free-agent back Chris Johnson a contract.
Cardinals' Arians: Andre Ellington to continue in same role
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after his team drafted running back David Johnson in the third round that Andre Ellington is expected to continue in his same role next season, ESPN.com reports.
"I think Andre will continue his same role," Arians said. "We’ll keep him healthy and let him continue to develop as a player, but the nice thing David can do is he can do everything Andre does, so you don’t have to change if there was an injury."
Ellington served as a three-down back for the Cardinals last season, but averaged just 3.3 yards per carry while racking up 660 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. He also gained 395 yards on 46 receptions while scoring two touchdowns through the air. After racking up eight carries of at least 20 yards in just 118 attempts in his rookie season, Ellington managed just four carries of 20-plus yards while receiving nearly twice the workload in 2014.
Andre Ellington OK with Cardinals drafting another running back
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) If the Cardinals decide to draft a running back in one of the higher rounds, running back Andre Ellington would be OK with it.
Ellington was a three-down back for Arizona last year that got plenty of touches in the running and passing games. But if the Cardinals use a high pick on a running back, that could cut into Ellington's touches.
That's something that wouldn't bother Ellington.
“It’s whatever will better our team,” Ellington told the team's website. “That’s most important. No one is going to hate any decisions. I’m sure those guys will make the best decisions to help the team. We’ll accept any guy who comes in.”
Another quality runner could help Ellington, who dealt with numerous injuries a year ago, in the long run. His season ended last December after undergoing hernia surgery.
Cardinals' Arians: Andre Ellington is still the focal point of the offense
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told reporters that running back Andre Ellington's role "hopefully will expand" next season. Ellington was limited last season after he split the tendon in his left foot and couldn't practice as much as Arians desired.
"He's still the focal point of our offense and we'll try to build around him," Arians said.
Ellington, who is signed through the 2016 season, underwent hernia surgery in early December. He was limited to 12 games by a variety of injuries and finished with 1,055 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns.
|Andre Ellington was expected to take a significant leap in production in 2014, but injuries marred what should have been a breakout season. He had a foot injury before the start of the season and was placed on injured reserve in Week 14 with hernia surgery. Despite these ailments, he managed nine games with at least 20 touches. Whether or not he remains an every-down back this fall remains to be seen -- the Cardinals drafted impressive pass-catching back David Johnson and signed veteran rusher Chris Johnson (yes, that Chris Johnson) in mid-August. It's probably for the best that you consider Ellington a starter with potential for many games with 15 or so touches, not the 20 he racked up last year. That makes him a No. 2 running back in all formats but especially PPR. Rounds 4 through 6 are where he'll get taken.
