Ellington did not practice Friday, a day after “tweaking” his left knee late in Thursday’s practice. He was listed as questionable on the injury report. Coach Bruce Arians does not want to rush his rookie running back, but feels he is getting healthy. Ellington said the knee is sore but he feels he’ll be able to play.
“I’m hoping,” he said. “I’ll see how it goes. We have two days before the game. That’s a lot of rest, two days. We’ll continue to rehab and get to Sunday and kinda get out there and run around.”
If you really need a running back you can play Ellington, but just be careful in case he is in fact out.
