Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Posts 25 yards rushing Monday

Ellington handled five carries for 25 yards during Monday's decisive win versus the Jets.

Ellington earned his first carries of the game in the midst of the Cardinals' first lengthy drive of the second half, but David Johnson otherwise handled all work out of the backfield until garbage time. As evidence, Johnson received 67 of the 77 offensive snaps, while Ellington picked up eight and Stepfan Taylor was given four. Such a breakdown won't equate to relevance anytime soon, but Ellington nonetheless appears to be the nominal backup to Johnson.
