    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Dealing with turf toe

    Coach Bruce Arians relayed Monday that Ellington is dealing with turf toe, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. Meanwhile, fellow RB Chris Johnson is dealing with a knee contusion, with the status of duo for this Sunday's game against the Rams not yet solidified. Next up for the Cards' carries if they miss time are David Johnson, Stepfan Taylor and possibly Kerwynn Williams, who is currently on the team's practice squad.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Could miss games

    Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer left the impression that both Ellington (foot) and Chris Johnson (knee) will miss time, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Ellington left Sunday's game against the 49ers with an injury in the same left foot that bothered him for much of last season. The Cardinals have yet to provide a meaningful update, but quarterback Carson Palmer did say that David Johnson and Kerwynn Williams will need to step up.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Sustains foot injury

    Ellington is questionable to return to Sunday's game at San Francisco due to a left foot injury, Josh Weinfuss of reports. Both Ellington and Chris Johnson (left knee, questionable) suffered injuries in the third quarter, which places rookie David Johnson firmly at the top of the depth chart. Because head coach Bruce Arians prefers to use every option at his disposal, though, fellow running back Stepfan Taylor could also receive a few touches down the stretch.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Held to seven total yards Sunday

    Ellington notched two carries for two yards and one catch (on two targets) for five yards during Sunday's win versus the Bengals. One week removed from his most fruitful performance of the season, Ellington fell back to earth, despite nearly matching Chris Johnson's snap count (25 versus 33, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix). Once again, Johnson handled the bulk of the work afforded running backs, recording 18 rushes for 63 yards and one reception for two yards on two targets. Meanwhile, rookie David Johnson reached paydirt for the seventh time this season on a 16-yard grab. Under the direction of head coach Bruce Arians, the veteran Johnson is the only guarantee out of the Cardinals' backfield in 2015, while Ellington and David Johnson will be hit-or-miss on a weekly basis.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Dashes for 48-yard touchdown

    Ellington rushed five times for 61 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown dash, and gathered in three catches (on four targets) for 27 yards during Sunday's win at Seattle. Ellington has taken his demotion to second-string back in stride, reeling off two lengthy touchdown runs among 17 carries since his return to action in Week 5. During that five-game stretch, he's totaled 152 rushing yards, which is good for an unconscionable 8.9 YPC. Furthermore, his pass-catching chops have been evident over the last five outings, with eight receptions for 102 yards on 11 targets. With the breakdown of snaps Sunday -- Ellington received 35 of 89, while Chris Johnson handled 49, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix -- there is plenty of work for both backs, given game flow from week to week. Still, Johnson racked up at least 20 carries (25, to be exact) for the fourth time in nine games this season, signaling that he remains the bell-cow back in Arizona.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Shut out Sunday

    Ellington earned 26 of the Cardinals' 81 offensive snaps Sunday at Cleveland, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. However, Ellington was shut out on three carries and didn't catch his only target. In advance of the contest, head coach Bruce Arians implied that Ellington's role was set to increase, and he wasn't entirely false. Ellington's usage increased slightly from 29 percent to 32 percent of the offensive snaps between Weeks 7 and 8, but his production didn't meet its previous modest standard, which included nine carries for 91 yards, five catches (on six targets) for 75 yards, and one touchdown in the three outings before Sunday's game. After the Cardinals' Week 9 bye, expect Ellington's production to remain muted as long as Chris Johnson is running roughshod over the opposition.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Could take on increased role

    Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said Ellington's role will increase in Sunday's game against the Browns, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Ellington could get the majority of passing-down work, but he's unlikely to take a big bite out of Chris Johnson's rushing workload unless the Cardinals are nursing a big lead in the second half. If Ellington does indeed take on extra snaps, they will likely come at the expense of rookie David Johnson.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Tallies 49 yards against Ravens

    Ellington rushed for 21 yards on five carries and added 28 yards on three catches in Monday's win over Baltimore. Monday's eight touches were Ellington's most since returning to the lineup in Week 5. The game also coincided with Chris Johnson's largest rushing yardage tally of the season. After trailing Ellington in carries in Week 1, Johnson emerged as the team's featured back in his absence and hasn't relinquished the title over the past three weeks. Barring injury, Ellington does not appear to be a threat to Johnson's stanglehold on the job and his size and running style do not make him an obvious candidate to vulture touchdowns.

    Cardinals' Andre Ellington: Minimal impact versus Pittsburgh

    Ellington gained seven yards on his lone carry of Sunday's 25-13 loss to the Steelers. He also gained 47 yards via a pair of catches. A week after returning from injury, Ellington remained a minimal part of the Cardinals' offense, as Chris Johnson earned the starting nod and led the backfield in touches by a considerable amount. It is unclear if Ellington will be eased into a more prominent role in the offense, but his fantasy value is seriously compromised as things currently stand. A third down role out of the backfield could salvage his short term fantasy potential, thanks to his big play ability as a receiver, but he was targeted just twice on Sunday. The Cardinals will look to bounce back from Sunday's loss in Week 7 against the Ravens.

    Cardinals RB Andre Ellington bumped from No. 1 running back gig

    Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is listed as the Cardinals' No. 2 running back in advance of Sunday's contest at Pittsburgh, Josh Weinfuss of reports. Ellington suffered a sprained PCL in Week 1 and subsequently logged three consecutive DNPs. His absence allowed Chris Johnson to take over the gig, as the veteran cruised to 405 rushing yards in the first five games. While Ellington returned Sunday in Detroit, he received just three carries, as opposed to 11 for Johnson and three for rookie David Johnson, including two goal-line reps. Ellington is poised to take on a change-of-pace role behind workhorse Chris Johnson for now, but his weekly tallies will likely be dependent on taking efficient use of his mix of rushes and receptions.
