Coach: Cards got RB Michael Bush to 'close out games'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio that the team signed running back Michael Bush because "we need a guy who's going to pound it in there and close out games for us." Bush, 30, scored 25 touchdowns over the past four seasons before getting released by the Bears.

Cardinals starter Andre Ellington has averaged under 3.0 yards per carry in three straight games and has rushed for three touchdowns this season.


Andre Ellington may be in trouble


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) Back when Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was sidelined by a shoulder injury -- a three-game period that spanned Weeks 2-5 -- running back Andre Ellington did well enough, twice going for more than 100 total yards and turning in his lone two-touchdown effort. But he was healthier then. Fresher. Forced to miss Wednesday practices all year because of a foot injury (and more recently, a hip injury), Ellington's conditioning and understanding of the game plan have suffered, coach Bruce Arians recently pointed out. And it couldn't be more evident in his numbers.

Week 12 at Seattle was his third straight game with less than three yards per carry. He ran 10 times for 24 yards. It was also his third straight with less than 70 total yards. He added 39 on five catches. 

Granted, the last two have come against especially tough defenses and with no help from the passing game, but Ellington had every reason to succeed Week 10 against St. Louis. His struggles combined with Arians' comments are reason to wonder if you can rely on him to close out the season.

He deserves one last chance Week 13 at Atlanta, but if he struggles then, we'll know it's not just a matchups thing.


Cardinals RB Andre Ellington totals 63 yards in Week 12 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington rushed for just 24 yards on 10 carries while catching five of his eight targets for 39 yards in his team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 12.

The Seahawks defense came to play Sunday, holding the Cardinals offense to just 204 yards on offense. Ellington didn't get much run with the team down most of the game, touching the blal just five times after halftime and not at all in the final quarter. He's averaged less than 2.5 yards per carry in each of his last three games and hasn't scored in either of his last two games. Ellington will try for a big bounceback performance in a much easier Week 13 matchup against the Falcons.


Cardinals list seven players probable for Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) The questionable status of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (knee) headlines the injury report submitted by the Cardinals for their Sunday game against Seattle. Ed Stinson (toe) was the only player on the list ruled out for Week 12.

Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: Sam Acho (neck), Lorenzo Alexander (knee), Andre Ellington (foot, hip), Larry Foote (hip), Robert Hughes (hamstring), Rashad Johnson (back) and Dan Williams (elbow).


Cardinals RB Ellington participating in Wednesday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) A nagging foot issue that has kept Cardinals running back Andre Ellington out of Wednesday practices this season will not do the same this time around per ESPN. He is set for limited work Wednesday as the team prepares for its Week 12 game at Seattle.

Ellington has struggled recently after a strong run. He has just 65 yards rushing in 37 carries over the last two weeks for a 1.7 YPC average.


Arians: Andre Ellington's missed practices catching up with him


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said running back Andre Ellington's routine of sitting out Wednesday practices is hurting his production on Sundays, reports ESPN.com. "It's showing up too much on Sundays right now," Arians said.

"Then, obviously, he can't run well enough in the passing game for us to do some things. He saw a ghost on the screen pass out there, turned around and lost 4 yards when he should've had about 20. Just some of those things."

Ellington has nursed a foot injury all season and lately has battled a hip issue, too. He's yet to run for 100 yards in a game and is averaging 3.4 yards per carry this season.

Arians indicated that missing Wednesday practices has affected Ellington's conditioning and his ability to "see the game plan through the eyes of Cardinals coaches," the report said.

"He's gutting it up on Sundays, but he needs to perform better too," Arians said. "Right now, he's as healthy as he's been and we need more out of him."


Andre Ellington bottled up in Week 11 victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington struggled to find running lanes in the Week 11 win over the Lions, gaining 42 yards on 19 carries (2.2 ypc). Ellington caught all four of his targets for 24 yards, his third straight game with at least four grabs.

Over the last two games, Ellington has run 37 times for just 65 yards (1.8 ypc). He has another tough matchup Week 12 at Seattle.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) As expected, Cardinals running back Andre Ellington was officially labeled probable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Ellington was a limited participant all week in practice despite nursing injuries to his foot and hip. He will likely be accompanied by Stepfan Taylor on Sunday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington has sore ribs following Week 7 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday running back Andre Ellington has sore ribs following Sunday's win at Oakland. However, he is not dealing with any structural damage.

Ellington rushed for 88 yards on 24 carries and added 72 receiving yards on six catches during a 24-13 win Week 7. Ellington has 393 rushing yards and is averaging 3.7 yards per carry through six games. He also has 260 receiving yards and two touchdowns (one rushing).


Andre Ellington good despite Stepfan Taylor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) Fantasy owners don't have much cause to complain about Cardinals running back Andre Ellington, not after the all-around performance he had Week 7 at Oakland, leading the team not only in rushing with 88 yards on 24 carries but also receiving with 72 yards on six catches.

But of course, many will complain because he didn't meet the gold standard of Fantasy greatness: He didn't score a touchdown. Even worse, he could have scored a touchdown (and maybe two) if not for the presence of Stepfan Taylor, who scored one on a 2-yard catch in the first quarter and another on a 4-yard run in the third.

It's an unfortunate development, to be sure. The Cardinals ran four plays from inside the 5-yard line on two separate drives, and Taylor got the ball on all of them. But it's not entirely unexpected either. Ellington has always been seen as a big-play guy, not a grinder.

The good news is that Ellington's touches continue to rise. He went from 20 in Week 5 to 25 in Week 6 to 30 here in Week 7, so the Cardinals are using him as much as they promised coming into the year. And with his big-play ability, enough of those touches will end in the end zone to keep you satisfied.

And hey, now you know who to handcuff to him. You'll want to add Taylor if only for that purpose.


Cardinals' Andre Ellington does it all Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington contributed in multiple ways Week 7.

Ellington made an impact in the rushing game, picking up 88 yards on 24 carries. He was equally impressive in the passing game, notching six receptions for 72 yards. Ellington led the team in both rushing and receiving yards for the game. He also avoided an injury during the contest. Ellington went down at the beginning of the fourth quarter with what appeared to be a leg issue. It turned out to be cramping, and Ellington was able to return.

He'll look for more Week 8 against the Eagles. 


Cardinals' Andre Ellington dealing with cramps


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is dealing with some cramps Week 7.

Ellington is probable to return. He laid on the field trying to stretch out his leg for some time before walking off. Ellington had 86 rushing yards and 62 receiving yards before leaving the contest. 


Cardinals will have Andre Ellington, Michael Floyd


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals offensive studs Andre Ellington and Michael Floyd are artive Week 7 against the Raiders.

Both players came into the contest considered probable, and were expected to play. Ellington is still dealing with a foot injury. Floyd has a groin issue.
