Ellington has resumed practicing, after being held out for two sessions earlier in the week due to a neck issue, the Associated Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

In his second NFL season, Ellington, who said he gained four pounds of muscle during the offseason, is poised to shoulder a bigger load in the Arizona offense in 2014, with Rashard Mendenhall no longer in the mix. With that in mind, coach coach Bruce Arians has expressed confidence that Ellington, who had 118 carries and 39 catches in 15 games last season, is now "more than ready to be the bell cow of the offense." Meanwhile, fellow RBs Stepfan Taylor and and Jonathan Dwyer are in the mix to serve as complementary options.
Ellington (neck) is expected to return to practice Friday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ellington was initially held out Tuesday as a result of the neck concern, which isn't deemed to be severe but resulted in another absence Wednesday. After an off-day Thursday, his presence Friday will confirm that there's nothing to worry about regarding the Cardinals' No. 1 back. In the meantime, Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer have garnered more reps than normal out of the backfield.
Ellington (neck) will not practice Tuesday, the Cardinals' official website reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ellington's neck injury is not considered serious and the running back is expected to return to practice for Wednesday's session. If that proves true, Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer will briefly be handed more reps before Ellington, Arizona's projected starter, returns Wednesday.
Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site estimates that Ellington could see about 20-to-22 touches a game this season.

Ellington is in line to handle 25-to-30 touches per contest this coming season, though that threshold depends upon how much he's utilized as a receiver, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There was some confusion earlier in the offseason when general manager Steve Keim stated that Ellington would play 25-to-35 snaps weekly in 2014, even as the "featured" back. However, as the No. 2 to Rashard Mendenhall, Ellington was given 29.4 snaps per outing after the Cardinals' bye in Week 9, so the fact that coach Bruce Arians will devote 25-to-30 snaps is a sensible amount. Despite garnering 157 touches across 15 games as a rookie, Ellington still managed to rip off 11 plays of at least 20 yards, good for fifth among running backs.
