Jonathan Dwyer will likely start Week 1 if Andre Ellington is a no-go


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) If Andre Ellington (foot) is unable to play Monday night against the Chargers, Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer would likely start in his place Week 1, according to the Arizona Republic on Friday.

Ellington is nursing a foot issue that could keep him out an "extended period time," according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910.

Dwyer signed with Arizona in the offseason after starting only six of his first 36 career games. He has totaled 971 yards on 230 carries, averaging 4.2 yards per attempt on the ground. Stepfan Taylor should also see some reps if Ellington sits out the opener.

Coach: Jonathan Dwyer 'exactly' what team expected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said running back Jonathan Dwyer, who got a goal-line touchdown run Saturday against the Vikings, is "exactly" what the team anticipated when it signed him, reports ESPN.com. "Jon can bounce it outside; he has deceptive speed for a big man," Arians said.

Dwyer is competing with Stepfan Taylor for opportunities behind starter Andre Ellington.


Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer will have distinct roles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Although Stepfan Taylor has been running ahead of Jonathan Dwyer in training camp, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the running backs are not competing for the backup role behind Andre Ellington. Instead, Arians plans to use each back based on his strengths.

"We have all the confidence in the world in Stepfan and Jonathan," Arians said. "Jonathan had a big, long run (Tuesday) and Stef did an unbelievable job in pass protection. It’s an ongoing thing, and we’ll use them both.

"We won’t really have a two and a three. They’ll have roles and go into games with roles so everybody knows exactly what to expect. And when your number’s called to increase your role, you better be ready."


Arians happy with two surprise running backs


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2014) Andre Ellington is pretty much locked into the Cardinals' starting running back job heading into training camp, but he won't hog all of the carries. Cards coach Bruce Arians told ESPN that backups Jonathan Dwyer and Robert Hughes have each been a pleasant surprise so far this offseason

"(Dwyer) is in better shape and he's running routes and catching the ball better than I remember," Arians said. "I know he'll pound you and can really run the football. I know he can pass block. But he caught the ball extremely well. He made some catches in the red zone for us. That was a surprise." 

As for Hughes, the former Colts backup rusher, Arians called him "outstanding," citing his toughness, mentality and skill set as strengths. Not only is he a load on his feet but he can also run good routes and catch passes. 

Both have a chance to make the Cardinals final roster.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
