NFL final injury report, Week 13: Andre Ellington questionable for Cardinals vs. Eagles

New, comment

A look at the injury report one more time before game day.

The Arizona Cardinals could be without their most dynamic playmaker of the 2013 season offensively. Rookie running back Andre Ellington is questionable for the game after missing all of practice on Friday with a knee injury.

According to Ellington, he tweaked the knee on a pass route during Thursday's practice. He told reporters (via the team's official web site) that he expects to play on Sunday, noting that the two days off "is a lot of rest."

Head coach Bruce Arians said that it was "nothing real serious," but did not that the team wants to be cautious with their rookie sensation. He will be a gametime decision on Sunday.

If he is unable to go, it does not necessarily mean that we will see Ryan Williams. When Rashard Mendenhall was inactive for a game, it meant that Stepfan Taylor got his carries. Without Ellington, it would cut out "five or six plays" from the playbook because of the way the team uses Ellington both as a runner and a receiver. His absence would probably mean a little more Mendenhall and then Taylor again.

Ellington is the only player listed as questionable. Everyone else listed on the injury report is probable for Sunday and were full participants in practice on Friday.

Philadelphia ruled out safety Earl Wolff for the game on Sunday with a knee injury. He did not practice all week.

There were four other players on the injury report, but they all practiced fully on Friday and they are all probable for Sunday.
