Report: Andre Ellington had MRI on foot

The Cardinals have high hopes for running back Andre Ellington this season, which makes any injury a concern for the team’s offense.

Ellington was limited in Thursday’s practice with a foot injury. Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 reports that Ellington has been bothered by foot trouble over the last week and that he “irritated” the issue during Thursday’s session.

Jurecki adds that Ellington went for an MRI on Thursday as well, which may just be about an abundance of that aforementioned caution but it’s never a great development when your starting running back needs to have tests done on either of his feet.

Ellington ran for 652 yards last season while averaging 5.5 yards per pop and added 371 more yards on 39 catches, providing the kind of balance that has Arizona viewing him as a three-down back heading into his second NFL campaign. If an injury should interfere with those plans, the Cardinals would turn to Jonathan Dwyer, Stepfan Taylor and Robert Hughes in an attempt to fill the void.

    I don’t trust the hype on this dude. He had chances to be great last year and he was average.

    Of coarse this guy plays in the last game of the week! Hopefully, we hear his status prior to Sunday’s games.

    I wonder if all these foot injuries in the NFL are just what they used to call turf toe? Seems like you don’t hear about turf toe anymore.
