Ellington makes it through Wk 1 with no setbacks-- Tue Sep 9 10:00 am --
Likely won't be 100% anytime soon
"When I warmed up beforehand," Andre Ellington said when asked when he knew he would play. "I didn't run after I injured it this week. I didn't run at all, but I was able to get out there before the game and give it a shot." Ellington wasn't 100 percent in the Cardinals' 18-17 win, but he was still Arizona's most effective running back, carrying the ball 13 times for 53 yards and catching five passes for 27.(Arizona Republic)
FF Today's Take:Ellington admits he doesn't have the same quickness moving from left to right and the foot is likely to hamper him in the coming weeks. As a result, Ellington's fantasy ceiling is capped at a RB2 level until he regains his full lateral movement. Expect him to be limited in practice this week but give it a go on Sunday.
Ellington a gametime decision-- Sat Sep 6 11:00 pm --
Listed as questionable
Arizona Cardinals starting running back Andre Ellington will be a game-time decision after being limited in Saturday's practice, coach Bruce Arians said. He was officially listed as questionable on the Cardinals' final injury report of the week after getting an MRI on Thursday on a foot injury.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Ellington was limited in practice on Saturday and it appears no surgery is needed at this time. "It's one of those things that every day when you wake up it could be different," Arians said. If you have to set your lineup early, it would be best leave Ellington out of it. The risk of him ending up on the Inactive list is too great. Jonathan Dwyer and Stepfan Taylor would fill in for Ellington if he sits.
Andre Ellington has MRI on injured foot-- Fri Sep 5 2:00 am --
Limited in practice on Thursday
Running back Andre Ellington practiced on a limited basis (Thursday) because of a foot injury.
Reporters' access to players and coaches came before the injury report was issued Thursday, so more information was not available. Hearing Andre Ellington was dealing with some discomfort in his left foot the past week, irritated his foot during practice on Thursday #MRI.(Mike Jurecki via Twitter)
FF Today's Take:We'll have to wait for clarity from the team which I'm sure will be coming later today but this should fan the flames regarding Ellington's durability concerns. Jonathan Dwyer is next in line for carries should Ellington miss any playing time.
