(12/7/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after Sunday's win that the team will place running back Andre Ellington on season-ending injured reserve due to a sports hernia, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ellington missed his first game Week 14 but had been ineffective recently as he dealt with multiple injuries, including foot and hip problems. 

Coach Bruce Arians said Monday he doesn't think Ellington will need surgery on his foot, just the hernia. 

Ellington finishes the year with 660 rushing yards, 395 receiving yards and five total touchdowns.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Report: Cardinals considering shutting down Andre Ellington?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Cardinals might consider shutting down running back Andre Ellington for the rest of the season due to hip pointer and sports hernia injuries, according to FOX Sports 910 reporter Mike Jurecki. Ellington will likely see a specialist to determine the extent of his injuries.

Ellington, who started the first 12 games, will miss his first game of the season Sunday vs. Kansas City. He has been held to less than 50 rushing yards in his last four games.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Also listed as questionable were Jared Veldheer and Larry Foote. Lorenzo Alexander and Kenny Demens were the only players listed as probable.

The Cardinals also listed Tyrann Mathieu, Paul Fanaika, Ed Stinson and Andre Ellington as out.


Cardinals missing key members at Thursday's practice


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) Cardinals offensive tackle Jared Veldheer was back at practice Thursday, but linebacker Larry Foote (hip),defensive lineman Ed Stinson (toe) and running back Andre Ellington (hip) all missed practice.

Veldheer has played in all 12 of the Cardinals' games this year, but is dealing with an ankle injury suffered in Wednesday's practice. 

The Cardinals face the Chiefs in Week 14. 


Cardinals RB Andre Ellington dealing with two hip injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is dealing with a hip flexor on one side in addition to a "severe hip pointer" on his other side, reports ESPN. Ellington did not practice Wednesday and probably won't practice all week leading up to Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

ESPN considers Ellington unlikely to play. Coach Bruce Arians has said Ellington likely will be a gametime decision.

(12/2/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told reporters Tuesday running back Andre Ellington is suffering from a ‘severe’ hip pointer, reports FOXSports.com.

Arians added it is unlikely Ellington will be able to practice this week and will be a game-time decision. The Cardinals play Kansas City Sunday.


Just keeps getting worse for Andre Ellington


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2014) Andre Ellington has technically been one of the best 12 running backs in Fantasy this season, but you wouldn't know it by his recent performance. With just 12 yards on five carries Week 13 at Atlanta, he has averaged 25.3 yards on 13.0 carries in his last four games -- a stretch that almost directly coincides with the loss of quarterback Carson Palmer to a season-ending injury.

Of course, health hasn't been Ellington's ally either. He has contended with a foot injury all season, costing him valuable practice time as well as limiting his ability, and to make matters worse, he suffered a hip pointer Week 13 at Atlanta, leaving before the end of the first half.

So if you're keeping score at home, he was already hobbled and the No. 1 target for defenses with no threat of a passing game, and now he has a second injury that might keep him off the field altogether. I'd say regardless of his actual playing status, you might want to avoid Ellington for Week 14 against Kansas City.

And if he does miss the game, the Cardinals will turn to some combination of Marion Grice, Stepfan Taylor, Robert Hughes and Michael Bush in his place, so good luck sorting out that mess.


Cardinals Andre Ellington won't practice Wednesday with hip pointer


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is expected to miss practice on Wednesday with a hip pointer, coach Bruce Arians said Monday. 

There is still no time table on Ellington's return to action. He has rushed for 660 yards and three touchdowns this year. 


Report: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington has hip pointer


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington may have suffered a hip pointer injury in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, according to Fox Sports 910's Mike Jurecki. It is unclear how long this injury will keep Ellington out of action, but it could be 1-2 weeks. 

Coach Bruce Arians will likely reveal the extent of the injury in his Monday press conference. 

Ellington is averaging 3.3 yards per carry so far this season. 


Cardinals' Andre Ellington believes he'll be fine


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington believes he'll be fine, the team announced.

Ellington said the hip injury he's dealing with is different than the one he's struggled with earlier in the year. He had to leave Week 13 after just five carries due to the injury. The Cardinals will take on the Chiefs Week 14. Ellington's status will likely be determined by how much he's able to practice throughout the week.

Cardinals' Andre Ellington among actives for Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Cardinals will have running back Andre Ellington Week 13 against the Falcons.

Stanton, Brown, Ellington among probables for Cardinals in Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) The Cardinals ruled Kenny Demens (hamstring) and Ed Stinson (toe) out for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Larry Fitzgerald, who is dealing with a MCL sprain, is the only player on Arizona's list deemed questionable. Coach Bruce Arians told reporters Fitzgerald will be a game-time call.

Meanwhile, the following players were designated as probable: Lorenzo Alexander (knee), Marcus Benard (shoulder), John Brown (teeth), Andre Ellington (hip, foot) and Drew Stanton (ankle).


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.
