Despite being responsible for three of the Cardinals 10 longest plays Sunday against the New York Giants, running back Andre Ellington is still in pain, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said.
“It’s uncomfortable but he’s getting it up pretty good,” Arians added during his Monday press conference.
“By after the bye week, he’ll be fine,” Arians said.
The story says the soreness in Ellington’s left foot has gone down considerably from last Monday, according to Arians. The plan is to give Ellington off Wednesday and have him practice Thursday and Friday to prep for the 49ers in Week 3. The Cards bye week is Week 4, and we heard all along Ellington just needs to rest the foot because the issue can't get any worse. Hopefully the bye week does just that.
