Cardinals’ See Ellington With Same Offensive Role as ’14


The drafting of Northern Iowa running back David Johnson isn’t likely to reduce Andre Ellington’s opportunities with the Arizona Cardinals.

At least not according to coach Bruce Arians, who told reporters, per ESPN.com: “I think Andre will continue his same role. We’ll keep him healthy and let him continue to develop as a player, but the nice thing David can do is he can do everything Andre does, so you don’t have to change if there was an injury.”

It was last offseason when Arians talked about plugging in Ellington for 25 to 30 carries per game, viewing the back as Arizona’s version of Jamaal Charles.
