Andre Ellington expected to play-- Fri Dec 25 7:15 pm --
Will likely be change of pace back
Running back Andre Ellington (toe), safety Rashad Johnson (ankle), defensive tackle Cory Redding (ankle) and defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (ankle) were all listed as questionable against the Packers.
Arians said the likelihood of Ellington playing Sunday is “very good.”
“He’s fine,” Arians said. “He practiced full speed two days in a row now.”
FF Today's Take:David Johnson has taken over the lead back duties in Arizona but Ellington should be worked in for 7-10 touches on Sunday against the Packers. Johnson remains a clear-cut RB1.
David Johnson to start again, Ellington ruled out-- Wed Dec 9 7:21 pm --
FF Today's Take:Rookie RB David Johnson did just fine carrying the load for the Cardinals last week and he'll be asked to do so again in Week 14 with Andre Ellington already ruled out for Thursday's matchup with the Vikings. Johnson should be able to find just enough room against Minnesota to be a low-end RB2 this week. Meanwhile, Andre Ellington continues to be sidelined with turf toe so Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor will backup Johnson.
