    The majority of Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's playing time may come at wide receiver, as long as RBs David Johnson and Chris Johnson are healthy, according to azcardinals.com's Darren Urban.

    Huddle Up: That's looking about the best chance to keep Ellington involved after his career-low 60 offensive touches in 10 games last season as the Johnsons played and played well as the Cards' lead backs. In all, though, given the talented Arizona WR corps, Ellington projects as the odd-man out there as well.

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington could be on the roster bubble because he has not lived up to expectations at this point, according general manager John Keim. 'Andre hasn't proved he can be a 20-25 touch-a-game guy. David Johnson has,' Keim said. 'If the guy doesn't fulfill expectations, it's time to move on.'

    Huddle Up: Ellington is entering the final year of his 4-year, $2.3 million rookie deal so he's not going to cost the Cards too much to keep, but health definitely is a concern after he's missed a combined 11 games over his first three seasons, and whatever way the Cards decide to go this offseason shouldn't come as any surprise.

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is not 100% at this point and probably will not be again until after the season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: This should come as no surprise, since staying healthy has been Ellington's bugaboo throughout his NFL career. With David Johnson in place as the feature back, expect Ellington to stay in a change of pace role going forward--perhaps not as lucrative fantasy-wise but one with limited touches that should keep him on the field more consistently.

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson carried nine times for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Green Bay Packers and he added three receptions for 88 yards on six targets. His touches were limited, but head coach Bruce Arians said Sunday, Dec. 27, that Johnson is fine and he just wanted to get RB Andre Ellington work.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't the monster game Johnson had two weeks ago but 127 total yards and a touchdown still helped plenty of owners to a fantasy titles. Johnson is an emerging superstar heading into 2016.

  • Posted: 12/26/2015 12:56pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is expected to play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 16 even though he is listed as questionable, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Ellington's status won't impact David Johnson. Johnson is locked and loaded as an RB1 for fantasy championship week.

  • Posted: 12/21/2015 8:14pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) could return to action in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Bruce Arians. The Cardinals want to give Ellington a shoe that is comfortable enough for him to play in while dealing with turf toe.

  • Posted: 12/18/2015 9:09pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) returned to a limited practice Friday, Dec. 18, but is questionable to play against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 15. It was his first time back on the field since suffering a turf toe injury Nov. 29. Ellington will be a game-time decision Sunday night, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals play late Sunday but Ellington isn't really a starting option at this point in the fantasy season. Even if Ellington is active, his presence shouldn't hurt David Johnson's value much. Johnson is locked in as a strong RB2 regardless of Ellington's status.

  • Posted: 12/16/2015 8:37pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is 'iffy' for Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Ellington isn't expected to play against the Eagles on Sunday. David Johnson will once again dominate touches and be a strong RB2 for the second week of fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/15/2015 8:30pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is making progress with his turf toe. Ellington said he can tell if he's progressing by how much pain he feels when he walks. Ellington said he wants to play this weekend, but admitted that he's not 100 percent yet.

    Huddle Up: Ellington has missed two straight games and count on him missing at least one more as rookie David Johnson has impressed (two straight games with at least 120 total yards) in place of the injured Chris Johnson.

  • Posted: 12/10/2015 8:08pm ET

    The Arizona Cardinals have declared RB Andre Ellington, OT D.J. Humphries, DL Frostee Rucker, TE Jermaine Gresham, CB Jerraud Powers, QB Matt Barkley, LB Shaquille Riddick inactive for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: As fully expected, Ellington will miss a second straight game, leaving the Cards' rushing duties to rookie David Johnson and Kerwynn Williams.

  • Posted: 12/9/2015 4:04pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) has been ruled out for Week 14 Thursday, Dec. 10, against the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Posted: 12/9/2015 9:08am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is unlikely to be ready to play in the Week 14 game against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Dec. 10, head coach Bruce Arians said in a satellite radio interview Tuesday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: With both Ellington and Chris Johnson out, David Johnson will once again be the lead back for the Cardinals.

  • Posted: 12/8/2015 7:48pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) missed practice for a second consecutive day Tuesday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: It's a short week of course, and it's looking very much like Ellington will miss a second straight game. If so, rookie David Johnson and Kerwynn Williams will see if they can reprise their Week 13 success.

  • Posted: 12/7/2015 8:02pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) did not participate in practice Monday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Ellington is trying to come back on a short week after sitting out Sunday, but the Cards have the luxury of not rushing him back with rookie David Johnson and Kerwynn Williams performing so well in Week 13.

  • Posted: 12/4/2015 3:53pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) has been ruled out for the Week 13 game against the St. Louis Rams.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here, and if you have or picked up rookie David Johnson, it looks like he'll be thrust into the bell-cow role so expect 15-20 touches.

  • Posted: 12/3/2015 3:54pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 3.

    Huddle Up: No real new news here as Ellington remains unlikely to play Sunday against the Rams.

  • Posted: 12/2/2015 11:46pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

  • Posted: 12/2/2015 11:19am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson was confirmed as the lead back, by head coach Bruce Arians. Arians also sounded confident that RB Andre Ellington (toe) will be able to play in Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams.

    Huddle Up: Expect Johnson to handle the bulk of the work, as Ellington has been lightly used since returning from an earlier injury and in a stunning development isn't fully healthy right now.

  • Posted: 11/30/2015 4:42pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) suffered a turf toe injury in Week 12, but the severity is unknown at this time.

    Huddle Up: Ellington and Chris Johnson are both dealing with injuries. The Cardinals official web site thinks David Johnson will be Arizona's starter for Week 13 against the Rams. If that's the case, Johnson will be an RB2 this week.

  • Posted: 10/31/2015 2:44pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is expected to have a bigger role in the offense in the Week 8 game against the Cleveland Browns, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Ellington was on the field for 18 offensive snaps in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Ellington will continue to be worked in behind Chris Johnson. Expect Ellington to be a bigger part of the passing game in the coming weeks. He could ultimately become a Flex option in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/7/2015 12:58am ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) is expected to play in the Week 5 game against the Detroit Lions, head coach Bruce Arians said in a satellite radio interview Tuesday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: Ellington was close to returning in Week 4 and should get over the hump and play for the first time since getting injured in the season opener. That's not good news for those who have been starting Chris Johnson, who's averaged 20.6 touches per game during Ellington's absence. In Week 1, Ellington had 13 touches, Johnson 10 and rookie David Johnson only one.

  • Posted: 10/1/2015 10:49pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: The plan was for Ellington to take it easy in practice most or even all of the week, and he still would seem to be on track to make his return Sunday against the Rams. Check back Friday for any updates.

  • Posted: 9/28/2015 8:05pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) will participate in practice in a limited fashion during the early part of the week, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

  • Posted: 9/26/2015 2:02pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) will not be able to play in the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source.

  • Posted: 9/25/2015 8:02pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 25, and is listed as doubtful for the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Ellington isn't going to play on Sunday. Chris Johnson will start but expect rookie David Johnson to see more touches this week. David Johnson is a Flex option despite only getting seven touches in his first two games.

  • Posted: 9/25/2015 6:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) will be a game-time decision for the Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Ellington did get on the practice field Friday for the first time since his injury two weeks, but he's still listed as doubtful and it would be somewhat of a surprise if he plays Sunday. Definitely plan on going with another option for the time being.

  • Posted: 9/23/2015 8:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.

    Huddle Up: Ellington isn't expected to play this week. Chris Johnson will start again with explosive rookie David Johnson getting more touches this week.

  • Posted: 9/23/2015 12:12am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) is running again, but he probably won't be able to play in Week 3. Head coach Bruce Arians said he's hopeful Ellington will be able to return in Week 4 against the St. Louis Rams.

    Huddle Up: Ellington sounds he got off fortunately, but it all remains conjecture at this point. In the meantime, the Johnsons -- veteran Chris and rookie David -- should share the workload a little more evenly this Sunday against the Niners after the latter's impressive two-TD outing in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/16/2015 8:38pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.

  • Posted: 9/14/2015 2:36pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) suffered a Grade 1 posterior cruciate ligament sprain Sunday, Sept. 13. Ellington is expected to return in two to three weeks.

  • Posted: 9/13/2015 8:48pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) suffered a posterior cruciate ligament injury to his knee in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Ellington's status for next week isn't known but if he can't play the running back duties will go to Chris Johnson and rookie David Johnson. Chris got more touches in Week 1 but David offers more upside.
