Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington left Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints with an apparent non-contact knee injury. He was taken to the locker room on a cart and did not return to the game.
Head coach Bruce Arians told reporters after the game that the team believes the injury is to Ellington’s PCL.
Chris Johnson took over and had 10 carries for 37 yards. Rookie David Johnson had just one touch - a 55 yard TD reception at a key point of the game. CJ2K would likely see a good part of the work in Week 2, but David Johnson may have also earned more touches. The Cards travel to Chicago in Week 2 for an early game.
