Team sources confirmed today that the Arizona Cardinals have released running back Andre Ellington.
Andre Ellington has not been favored much this season as he has been playing behind David Johnson (week 1), Kerwynn Williams and now with the arrival of Adrian Peterson, he was behind him also. Today, the Cardinals announced that former Eastern Michigan running back Bronson Hill will take Ellington’s role.
Now a free agent, Andre Ellington could be targeted as a depth addition for the Redskins who lost Chris Thompson this weekend to a concussion. The Houston Texans are also a possibility as they lost backup running back D’Onta Foreman to an Achilles injury against Arizona on Sunday.
