Ellington (hip/foot) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, the Cardinals' official site reports.
Ellington's limitations to start the practice week are nothing new, and with no reported setbacks in Week 12, we suspect that the running back will draw a probable designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Ellington (hip/foot) had 10 carries for 24 yards and caught 5-of-8 targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 19-3 loss at Seattle.
Ellington had a seven-yard rush at one point, meaning his other nine carries went for only 17 yards. He did make a big contribution as a pass catcher, but that doesn't help as much for those that play in non-PPR leagues. He's got a major opportunity to bounce back in Week 13, however, facing a porous Falcons' rush defense.

Ellington (hip/foot) is listed as active Sunday at Seattle, the Cardinals' official site reports.
Per usual, Ellington will brush aside injuries to power the Cardinals' backfield. He'll face a Seahawks defense that regains the services of linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe) for the first time since Week 6, which marked the point at which their yards per carry against for opposing running backs boosted from 3.4 to 4.5. As a result, Ellington may find little room to operate.

Ellington (hip/foot) is probable for Sunday's game against Seattle.
Ellington practiced all week, including a full practice Friday, so his status for Sunday isn't in question. He should get enough of a workload to remain in the RB2 conversation in most formats, though the Seattle run defense is expected to get a significant boost in the form of linebacker Bobby Wagner's return from a toe injury.

Ellington (hip/foot) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.
Ellington finds himself on the Cardinals' injury report on a weekly basis due to a lingering foot issue, but a hip concern is a new development for the second-year running back. Although he may sustain limited showings in drills all week, expect him to be considered probable for Sunday's contest at Seattle upon the release of Friday's report.

Ellington (foot) ran for 42 yards on 19 carries and caught 4-of-4 targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 14-6 win over the Lions.
Ellington was shaken up in the second half on an awkward handoff from Drew Stanton, but the second-year RB was able to return a couple of series later. While Ellington struggled on a per-play basis, keep in mind that the Lions boast one of the best rushing defenses in the league. It won't get easier for Ellington next week at Seattle, although Jamaal Charles ripped them for 159 yards and two touchdowns Sunday.

Ellington (foot) is listed as active Sunday against the Lions, the Cardinals' official site reports.
Per usual, Ellington is brushing aside his lingering foot issue in order to take the field. A tough matchups awaits, though, against a Detroit defensive front that has given up a mere 3.2 YPC and six total touchdowns to running backs in nine contests this season.

Ellington (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against Detroit.
Nothing to see here. Ellington continues to play with few or no restrictions despite his limited practice presence. He does have a tough matchup against Detroit's defense this week, though.

Ellington (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Ellington is upholding his practice tradition from much of the season, but owners should worry little about his ability to suit up Sunday versus the Lions. While the sledding was tough in Week 10 -- 18 carries for 23 yards and five receptions for 19 yards -- he reached the end zone for a third game in a row, and fifth time overall in 2014. A similarly tough matchup awaits, though, as he's averaging 3.0 YPC to running backs in the last five contests.

Ellington (foot) had 18 carries for 23 yards and a touchdown, while catching 5-of-5 targets for 19 yards, in Sunday's 31-14 win over the Rams.
St. Louis has defended the rush well lately, and that was the case Sunday, as Ellington had a long run of just five yards. His five receptions and three-yard touchdown in the first half thus saved what would have otherwise been a very disappointing performance. Ellington might be leaned on even more in the future, as starting QB Carson Palmer left the game in the fourth quarter, with what several sources fear is a torn ACL. No matter who the quarterback is next week, Ellington will have a tough matchup, facing a stout Lions' defense.
