Cardinals have released Andre Ellington

The Arizona Cardinals have release running back Andre Ellington.

What It Means:

Ellington's role was fading since the trade to acquire Adrian Peterson, and Ellington was a healthy scratch in Week 11. Ellington should get signed somewhere as a third down back, but his release should give Kerwynn Williams some more run behind Peterson.

Ellington has collected just 53 yards rushing on 15 carries and a touchdown this season on the ground, to go with 33 catches for 297 yards through the air over 7 games this season.
