suffered a right knee injury in a 31-19 win against the New Orleans Saints.

Ellington had 12 carries for 69 yards and one catch for seven yards before leaving the game with the injury.

He had an MRI done and the injury is a grade 1 PCL sprain which should keep him out of action for two to three weeks. This is excellent news because it looked like a possible torn ACL when it happened.

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

Running backs Chris Johnson and rookie David Johnson will more than likely share the carries in Ellington's absence.
