Cardinals beat writer Alex Marvez: RB Andre Ellington has "severe" hip-pointer, per HC Bruce Arians. Probably won't practice this week. The team hopes he can go against the Chiefs, but he will be a game-day decision.
Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports that "Marion Grice likely will be the first one in if Ellington cannot play, but Stepfan Taylor and Robert Hughes will be in the mix, Arians said."
It's generally not a good sign if the head coach is talking about a game-time decision as early as Tuesday. Grice would be a decent desperation start against a mediocre Chiefs rush defense, but he's not likely to see a huge workload with Taylor, Hughes and possibly Michael Bush in the mix. Complicating matters, the Cardinals play in the late round of games on Sunday. Hopefully, we'll have some clarity on the situation by Saturday, but owners should not plan on having Ellington available in Week 14.
