  • Ellington (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Jaguars after practicing fully Friday. The same applies to fellow running back Alfred Blue (concussion), so Ellington is in line to have have some company in the Texans' backfield mix behind starter Lamar Miller (knee). In that capacity, neither Ellington nor Blue represent high-percentage fantasy plays against the Jaguars defense that has allowed just six rushing scores through 13 games.

  • Ellington practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday due to a knee issue. With Alfred Blue (concussion) practicing fully Wednesday, Ellington could have some company in the Texans' backfield mix behind starter Lamar Miller in Week 15 against the Jaguars. Neither Ellington nor Blue represent high-percentage fantasy plays against the Jaguars' stout defense, in any case.

  • Ellington had three carries for six yards and caught one of two targets for an additional 16 yards in Sunday's 26-16 loss to the 49ers. With Alfred Blue (concussion) inactive, Ellington moved up to second on the depth chart, but a banged-up offensive line with guys playing out of position was unable to create running room for either Ellington or starter Lamar Miller. With Houston running backs averaging less than three yards per carry (20 carries, 59 yards), the game plan shifted to the pass. Ellington's status for Week 15 against the Jaguars depends on Blue's recovery.

  • Ellington rushed twice for minus-6 yards while catching five of six targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 24-13 loss to Tennessee. Ellington saw snaps at wide receiver in his Houston debut with Braxton Miller (concussion) and Bruce Ellington (hamstring) exiting early. The running back's value comes primarily from his contributions catching the ball, as Ellington's totaled 353 receiving yards compared to just 49 rushing yards in nine appearances between the Cardinals and Texans this season.

  • Texans' Andre Ellington: Won't play Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellington is inactive for Monday night's game against the Ravens. Ellington's ability as a pass catcher out of the backfield could lead to him working in a complementary role behind Lamar Miller once he's more up to speed with the Houston offense, but Monday night at least, Alfred Blue will continue to back up Miller.
