From @RapSheet -- MRI for RB Andre Ellington confirmed a minor (Grade 1) PCL sprain in his knee. Out this week, potentially next week.— Michael Fabiano (@Michael_Fabiano) September 14, 2015
The Arizona Cardinals rushed for 120 yards in a win over the New Orleans Saints. Andre Ellington led the team with 69 yards on 12 carries, before suffering a knee injury and being carted off the field. Chris Johnson took 10 carries for 37 yards and rookie RB David Johnson took his only touch, a catch out of the backfield, 55 yards, scoring a TD and putting the nail in the coffin.
The Cardinals are not going to be the same team offensively, if Ellington does miss multiple games. Ellington did not play after Week 13 last season.
Carson Palmer looked great, racking up over 300 yards and throwing 3 touchdowns, one to WR John Brown, one to his TE Darren Fells and the 55 yarder to D. Johnson. Larry Fitzgerald led the team with 6 receptions for 87 yards. Michael Floyd did play, but was limited, catching 1 pass for 18 yards.
The Denver Broncos are waiting for news on C.J. Anderson, who suffered a sprained toe in a win over the Baltimore Ravens. Ronnie Hillman is owned in just 31% of Yahoo leagues, so if you need a RB replacement and don't have a good option on your bench, put in a claim for Hillman. Here are some other players to claim via waivers:
- Danny Woodhead - Chargers
- Bishop Sankey - Titans
- DeAngelo Williams - Steelers (One more game)
- Dion Lewis - Patriots
- Lance Dunbar - Cowboys
