Ellington (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
A matchup with the 49ers in a Drew Stanton-led offense aren't ideal circumstances for Ellington, but the big-play back is ready to give it his best shot. Ellington is running strong through his foot injury, totaling 144 yards on 28 carries (5.1 YPC) and catching six passes for 37 yards.

Ellington (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
Upgraded from a no-show Wednesday, Ellington fulfilled his hope that he'd be able to practice before the week was complete. Until the muscle injury in his left foot is a thing of the past, his activity level in drills will likely include a cap. However, his status should again be confirmed upon the release of Friday's injury report.

Ellington (foot) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.
As expected, Ellington was absent from drills, with the hope that he'll be able to fit in some work either Thursday or Friday. He'll nonetheless play through the muscle injury in his left foot, which continues to cause him discomfort. No matter, he's dominating the workload out of the Cardinals' backfield, taking 28 carries for 144 yards (5.1 YPC) and six receptions (on eight targets) for 37 yards.

Ellington (foot) is still dealing with pain in his left foot, but is hoped to be able to practice Thursday, FOX Sports reports.
Ellington once again played through discomfort in his left foot Sunday, when he totaled 91 yards on 15 carries against the Giants. The running back was held out of practice last week, before being a limited participant on Friday, and could be on a similar schedule this week. Cardinals' coach Bruce Arians has already acknowledged that Ellington won't practice Wednesday, so his involvement later in the week should be most worthwhile to monitor. Nonetheless, the Cardinals' recent management of Ellington's ailment leaves little reason to suggest he'll miss any game action. As such, it wouldn't be surprising if he suited up Sunday versus the 49ers, before enjoying a Week 4 bye to gain further rest.

Ellington (foot) had 15 carries for 91 rushing yards and one catch on three targets for 10 receiving yards Sunday against the Giants.
Ellington was questionable coming into the game, but said Friday that he would definitely play. His foot injury is expected to linger for a few more weeks, but he's clearly able to play through it at this point and doesn't figure to lose too many touches to Jonathan Dwyer, though the latter did convert a goal-line carry in the first quarter Sunday. Ellington was not very active in the passing game, catching one pass after grabbing five in Week 1, but he remains a vital part of the Cardinals' offensive attack, especially if quarterback Carson Palmer has to miss any additional time with his shoulder injury.

Ellington (foot) expected to take the field Sunday against the Giants in New York, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Along with Ellington's affirmation that he's "good to go" for Week 2, the running back appears poised to fend off the muscle injury in his left foot once again. However, be sure to confirm his status in advance of the Cardinals' 1:00 PM ET kickoff Sunday.

Though officially listed as questionable after a limited practice Friday, Ellington suggested that he is "good to go" for Sunday's game against the Giants, the Cardinals' official site reports.
Despite the running back's optimism, those considering rolling with Ellington in their Week 2 lineups will still want to verify his status for the contest, but fortunately the Cardinals kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday.

Ellington (foot) was a limited practice participant Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Although the Cardinals are referring to Ellington as questionable, it's hard to see why he wouldn't play after suiting up against the Chargers on Monday. There's been no report of a setback, and Ellington looked plenty explosive against the Chargers. The Giants front seven should pose a stern obstacle in the run game, though.

Ellington (foot) was spotted in full uniform during the media portion of the Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website reports.
It's not clear how much work Ellington was able to get in Friday, but it's a good sign that suited up Friday after sitting out the previous two days. Expect an update on Ellington's status following the conclusion of Friday's practice.
