Cardinals RB Andre Ellington feels good.
The running back, on injured reserve, had surgery in early December for what the team officially describes as a “core muscle injury,” bringing to a close a difficult sophomore season.
These days, Ellington has been spending some time on the stationary bike. On IR, there is no pressure to go fast, since Ellington cannot return this season. The surgery, Ellington said, “is what I needed.” He said he will be fine by the time the Cardinals begin offseason work in the spring.
Ellington had the #13 per game average among running backs, so he may be a good value depending on his average draft position heading into the 2015 season.
