1. Andre Ellington:
The Arizona Cardinals running game hit a hiccup when Andre Ellington suffered a foot injury. In the 12 games the Ellington played in, in 2014, the Cardinals running game seemed at its best.
Ellington was the 2013, 6th round draft pick for the Cardinals and has been surprising people ever since he hit the field. In his rookie season he played in 15 games and had 652 yards with three touchdowns. He was looking good going into the 2014 season.
In 2014 Ellington had an injury-plagued season, suffering from a foot injury and then being put on injured reserve after a sports hernia. In the games he did play he had 1,055 all-purpose yards 660 rushing yards and 395 receiving, with three rushing touchdowns and two receiving.
As we head into training camp Ellington looks healthy, and ready to take the Cardinals running game by storm. He is what I call a double-edged sward, he can kill a team on the run, but if that is not enough he can go deep to catch a pass from Carson Palmer.
If Ellington can stay healthy all season, fans maybe looking at a 1,000-yard rusher.
