Ellington (hamstring) is expected to suit up for Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After missing the first week of training camp due to a hamstring concern, Ellington was limited Tuesday and Wednesday, but 11-on-11 work has been a part of his workload so far. If he plays Saturday, his rep count will likely be capped to ensure a setback is avoided, though the absences of both David Johnson (hamstring) and Marion Grice (hamstring) could force head coach Bruce Arians to use Ellington a bit more than anticipated.
Ellington (hamstring) remained limited in practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Head coach Bruce Arians appeared to clear Ellington for full participation Tuesday, but the running back has logged back-to-back practices with capped reps in the meantime. On a positive note, Ellington fit in some 11-on-11 work Wednesday in which he looked smooth on a screen pass, harkening back to his flashes of brilliance from the past two seasons. Even if a full practice doesn't occur by week's end, he seems in line to take the field Saturday versus the Chiefs.
Ellington (hamstring) was limited at Tuesday's practice, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Prior to practice, head coach Bruce Arians said that Ellington and tight end Troy Niklas were cleared for "full-go." Although Ellington was unable to fulfill Arians' declaration, the running back appears on pace for full practice in advance of Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs, which he intends to take part in.
Ellington (hamstring) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After sitting out the initial week of training camp due to a hamstring concern, Ellington donned pads Monday - albeit in a limited capacity - for the first time since Week 13 last season. His uptick in activity level Tuesday bodes well for his ability to take the field in Saturday's preseason opener versus the Chiefs. In a backfield afflicted by injuries and a lack of competency, Ellington is the clear-cut No. 1 option in Arizona.
Ellington (hamstring) will return to practice Monday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Ellington proved to be a multifaceted and highly productive runner as a rookie once he played his way into an increased role from Week 8 on last year. He ended up with a sparkling 5.5 YPC as well as a terrific 9.5 yards per reception. However, he's on the small end by the standards of featured running backs just 5-9, 199 so he appears destined to be the Cardinals' most heavily used back in a committee approach this year. Even once Ellington started seeing more regular action last season, he never carried the ball more than 15 times in a game, more than likely in an effort to protect him from injury. But he's too good to shelter completely, and the Cardinals have no one else to lean on for full-time work backups Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer aren't good for much outside of a change of pace. The 25-year-old Ellington plays faster than his NFL Combine-clocked 4.61 40 time, and that was on display last season, as he broke eight rushes for more than 20 yards that's as many as LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson had, but in well under half as many rushing attempts. He also posted the best broken-tackle rate in the league, shedding 28 defenders despite his limited touches. With production like that, the Cardinals are going to have a hard time finding ways not to force-feed him the ball.

2013

Ellington will play a reserve role for the Cardinals with Rashard Mendenhall, Alfonso Smith, Ryan Williams, and Stepfan Taylor on the roster.
