ANDRE ELLINGTON RUMORS

Andre Ellington injury concerns are overblown

Cardinals GM Steve Keim and coach Bruce Arians seem to be fighting themselves when it comes to second-year running back Andre Ellington. They're building the offense around him. They don't see him as a featured back. They want him to get 20 carries and 10 catches - 10! -- per game. They're worried about overuse and getting him hurt. Ellington is a special talent. He...

Ellington to the Cardinals? Again??

TRAVIS BELL/SIDELINE CAROLINA Rhett Savage Arizona Cardinals Writer As we draw closer to the NFL Draft I can’t help but think of the next X – factor type prospect we can grab this year. Last year we all got quite the surprise out of Andre Ellington not only was he a shifty home run threat out of the backfield but also a great receiver. Call me crazy, but grabbing the other Ellington...

Bad hair day for Cardinals running back Ellington

Cardinals running back Andre Ellington had a rough day on the ground Sunday, and not only because he was held to three rushing yards on eight carries by the Jaguars. On a third-quarter Ellington carry that went for no gain, the Arizona rookie was brought down by his dreads by Jacksonville defensive end Jason Babin. The problem wasn't the tackle, which was legal; it was that...

WATCH: Jason Babin rips out Andre Ellington's dreads

Rocking dreads as an NFL running back is a risky move – you have to realize that defenders, willing to bring you to the ground at any cost, will latch on to your locks if they have to. That’s exactly what happened to Cardinals running back Andre Ellington on Sunday when Jaguars linebacker Jason Babin came away with a chunk of Ellington’s dreads on a third quarter run. [TBL...

Why is Andre Ellington not getting the lead role?

The most perplexing question facing the Arizona Cardinals up to this point in the season is why sixth-round rookie sensation Andre Ellington is not getting more touches? Week after week, Ellington has been putting up highlight after highlight in the air and on the ground, but still doesn’t see the expanded role he deserves. In fact, Andre Ellington is averaging about 4.3 more...

Andre Ellington runs hard on 17 touches for the Cardinals, but Mendenhall looms (RB Touches Week 8)

Running Back Touches Week 8 Andre Ellington played 35 snaps, which is right in line with what I projected, but I’ll admit I missed the total yardage bit by a hair or two. Ellington had 17 touches, and, even if you take away his 80 yard score he ran well. Whether he’ll start over Mendenhall moving forward remains to be seen. If so, this snap count still seems to be right around...

Andre Ellington is a very solid fantasy football pick up in week 6

Andre Ellington’s skill set is different from other’s in the NFL.  The former Clemson Tiger was a terror in college, but had a poor pro-day which eventually cost him his draft fall. He has great explosion but doesn’t have as much power as some backs in the NFL.  He’s a smaller back — he stands […]
