Andre Ellington didn’t have an overwhelming statistical night on Saturday against the Raiders, but did show glimpses of the player who once upon a time was the starting running back for the Cardinals.
Ellington finished with 20 rushing yards on seven carries, added four catches for 31 yards, and did not make any mistakes in pass protection.
Ellington’s most notable run was a 15-yarder in which he had nice blocking, and he also had a 13-yard reception.
“He’s healthy for the first time in two years,” coach Bruce Arians said. “He showed it on two or three runs (Saturday) and a couple of passes.”
