Cardinals rookie running back Andre Ellington inactive for Sunday’s game vs. Eagles
The Arizona Cardinals look to win their fifth straight game Sunday afternoon against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, but will have to do so without the services of their leading rusher, rookie Andre Ellington.
Ellington, who has 73 carries for 441 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games this season, was ruled inactive for Sunday’s game due to a left knee injury. The sixth-round pick out of Clemson tweaked the knee at the end of Thursday’s practice and was held out of Friday’s session.
With Ellington out, the Cardinals will carry just three running backs Sunday — Rashard Mendenhall, Alfonso Smith and Stepfan Taylor.
Here’s the list of the team’s other inactives:
QB Ryan Lindley
RB Ryan Williams
LB Dontay Moch
G Earl Watford
TE Kory Sperry
DL Ronald Talley
Wide receiver Brittan Golden (hamstring) is active Sunday for the first time since Week 7 in San Francisco.
