Ellington's recent activity level has included cutting during offseason workouts, the Arizona Republic reports. "It's like night and day," he said. "During the season I was limited on some cuts going to the right, pushing off my left foot. I'm close to doing a lot of things I've done in the past. Just [this week] I was able to do all my cuts and put a lot more pressure on my foot."

Ellington is tending to a hip pointer and sports hernia, which forced his first absence of the year Sunday against the Chiefs. In his stead, Stepfan Taylor and Kerwynn Williams garnered six carries apiece in the first half of the aforementioned contest, so a running-back-by-committee is seemingly ruling the day in Arizona.
According to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix, Ellington could be ruled out for the season.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ellington is dealing with a hip pointer and sports hernia, so it's no surprise that the Cardinals are considering a shutdown with four weeks remaining in the regular season. In the meantime, Stepfan Taylor will head the running back corps among the remaining backs in Arizona.

2015

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.
