Andre went through limited like he will probably

first_img“Andre went through limited like he will probably next week, also, and he’s fine,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday.Ellington, who is again ‘questionable’, agreed.“I feel good,” he said about his status. “Sunday is gameday so I’ll be ready. Adrenaline will be flowing and things like that, so I’ll be good to go.”What’s plaguing Ellington is a tear in the tendons in his left foot. The team is hoping extra rest will help him heal — or at least keep him fresh enough for Sundays — as it seems comfortable with the schedule Ellington was on this week, with two days of no practice and then one of the limited variety to finish the week.“As long as I get some rest throughout the week I feel like my foot will calm down a little bit and I’ll feel good going into the game,” Ellington said. Ellington added that it doesn’t really feel any better now than it did around this time last week, and while he understands rest is the most important thing, he feels good about the plan the team has in place to keep him on the field.He admitted that he’s not sure how long things will be like this, saying it’s kind of a day-by-day, week-by-week issue. Playing with it Monday night helped his confidence because it showed he could still be effective. He said he got off to a slow start in the win, but his foot “warmed up a little bit” as the game wore on and he started to feel good. 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington was listed as ‘questionable’ leading into Monday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers. He played in the game, and led the Cardinals in rushing with 53 yards, and touches with 18. While he may not have been 100 percent, he was good enough to go. It looks like the same may hold true for Sunday’s tilt with the New York Giants, as the second-year running back seems to be following the same pattern leading into the Week 2 matchup.

And while he’d rather be completely healthy, Ellington has no plans on missing any game time.“I want to play,” he said. “I don’t want to sit out.”last_img
