Grice had just one carry for one yard and a touchdown. It was initally called a fumble on the field, with the ball popping out as Grice stretched for the end zone. However, it was overturned and called a touchdown.
The Cardinals have been unable to get anything going on the ground the past few weeks, averaging 1.86 yards per carry in Arizona's last two outings.
Whether it was because he was limited in practice by a knee injury leading up to the game or because the
Williams seems to be the best rusher of the group and the one you'd prefer to see get the carries in Fantasy, but if the Cardinals are that willing to abandon him when the score isn't in their favor, you can never feel confident playing him in Fantasy. Especially now that the Cardinals are down to their third quarterback, the score isn't going to be in their favor so often.
Week 17 at San Francisco should be a more competitive game, but given that the 49ers are tough against the run as well, you should probably pass on Williams for the season's final week.
With running back Andre Ellington dealing with a hip pointer injury,
Arians also noted Stepfan Taylor and Robert Hughes will be in the mix and newcomer Michael Bush might fit into the equation.
Arians has already said Ellington will miss practice on Wednesday and his status for Sunday is unknown.
Grice has 11 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown on the season.
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
Andre Eillington left the game with a left hip injury, and was unable to return. Grice wasn't asked to do much, carrying the ball five times for 16 yards. That was good enough to lead the team. He also made a difference in the passing game, hauling in three balls for 24 yards.
Grice will take on the Chiefs Week 14.
