is getting his health back after a season-ending sports hernia injury in 2014.

He could barely practice most of the season with a torn tendon in his left foot and also had hip flexor issues.

However, Ellington is getting his confidence back after his successful hernia surgery and slowly rehabbing his left foot and giving it rest this offseason.

"It's like night and day," Ellington said to The Arizona Republic. "During the season I was limited on some cuts going to the right, pushing off my left foot."

"I'm close to doing a lot of things I've done in the past," Ellington said. "Just (this week) I was able to do all my cuts and put a lot more pressure on my foot."

The former Clemson star ran for 660 yards and three touchdowns last season in Arizona and also had 395 yards catching out of the backfield and two more scores.
