TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - After a breakthrough performance in Week 8, Andre Ellington might not have been so ready for his team's bye week.
Ellington rushed for 154 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown, on 15 carries as the starting running back for the Arizona Cardinals against the Atlanta Falcons two Sundays ago. Then the Cardinals had their bye, which allowed incumbent starter Rashard Mendenhall to heal up from a toe injury.
Come Monday when the Cardinals reconvened from the break, Ellington was back on the practice field. So was Mendenhall.
