Jonathan Dwyer gets first rushing TD since 2012
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer had his team's only offensive touchdown during a 25-14 win Week 2 at N.Y. Giants.

Dwyer finished with 31 rushing yards on nine carries, which included a 1-yard touchdown run on the team's opening drive. It was his third career rushing touchdown and first since the 2012 season with Pittsburgh. The touchdown was set up after Larry Fitzgerald's 8-yard touchdown catch was overturned, as it was ruled his knee was down at the 1-yard line before he stretched across the goal line.

The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 vs. San Francisco.

Jonathan Dwyer will likely start Week 1 if Andre Ellington is a no-go
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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

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

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."
