Cardinals RB Ellington aiming for return vs Rams


The Sports Xchange

Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington has been termed a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.

Ellington sprained a posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the season opener and missed the past two games. He returned to practice earlier this week and was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.

Arizona coach Bruce Arians indicated that Chris Johnson will start the game even if Ellington suits up.

“Andre’s not full speed enough to be a starter,” Arians told reporters.

Ellington said he will wear a brace on the knee and that he expects to play against the Rams.

“I don’t see why not,” he said. “I’m going to be smart about it.”
