- Rapoport adds that the first prescription for Ellington’s injury is rest and no surgery is not required.
- Jay Glazer reports that Ellington is dealing with a muscle injury in his foot and still waiting for MRI results and to meet with a foot specialist.
- However, Glazer mentions that muscle injures often come without a set timetable and heal differently.
Ellington has reportedly been “dealing with some discomfort” for the past week, but he wound up aggravating the injury in Thursday’s practice, which led to him getting an MRI.
Jurecki is now hearing that Ellington could be out an “extended period of time.”
It’s worth mentioning that Ellington has dealt with foot issues in the past.
For months now we’ve heard that Cardinals planned on using Ellington in a much larger capacity this season, but it sounds like he could be in jeopardy of missing at least Week 1’s opening game against the Chargers.
Last year, Ellington ran for 652 yards on 118 carries (5.5 YPC) while catching 39 passes for 371 yards. He scored four total touchdowns as well.
We’ll have more regarding his status as the news is available.
