Draft Scout Andre Ellington News
11/20/17 - RB Andre Ellington was released on Monday, a day after he was a healthy scratch for Sunday's game in Houston.
11/20/17 - RB Andre Ellington, who typically plays as the team's third-down back, was a healthy scratch on Sunday against the Texans.
He was replaced as the third-down back by second-year pro D.J. Foster, who finished with two receptions for 26 yards in his first action of the season. He did not have a rushing attempt. The Arizona State product won a Super Bowl last season as a member of the Patriots. Ellington was waived Monday.
10/20/17 - RB Andre Ellington is dealing with a quadriceps injury and has experienced swelling in the area that forced him to miss some practice time this week. "We think he'll be fine by game time," head coach Bruce Arians said, referring to Sunday's game in London against the Rams. Ellington is listed as questionable, along with linebacker Karlos Dansby (hamstring) and defensive tackles Robert Nkemdiche (calf), Xavier Williams (knee) and Olsen Pierre (ankle).
09/27/17 - RB Chris Johnson looked "a little rusty" against the Cowboys on Monday night, head coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday, hinting that Andre Ellington might see more time in the backfield this Sunday against the visiting 49ers.
"Andre looked very much more comfortable. I thought Andre looked very fast in the game," Arians said.
Asked if Ellington can be effective running between the tackles or if the player still projects more as a third-down back in passing situations, which is what he was when the season started, Arians said, "Andre's always been effective. When he was our guy, 80-yard runs were up the middle. We're not a perimeter running team anyways."
09/06/17 - RB Andre Ellington knew what he needed to do to remain on the 53-man roster: run harder and run meaner. Oh, and stay healthy.
He was able to do all of that and more this preseason and wound up beating out Chris Johnson for one of the four spots at the position. "I knew once I got my body in order to where I can play at a high level, it would be a no-brainer," Ellington said. "I was just frustrated with myself, just kind of figuring out my body and why some of the things were happening the way it was. A lot of the injuries were just freak injuries." Ellington stayed in the Phoenix area during the offseason in order to get his body "in order." "B.A. is the one who told me to stay here," Ellington said, referring to head coach Bruce Arians. "I got the message clear from him."
