For the season, Ellington still ran for a respectable 660 yards and three touchdowns. He also showed his all around game with 395 yards catching out of the backfield and two touchdowns.

The Cardinals are left with three running backs on the roster - Stephfan Taylor, Marion Grice and Kerwynn Williams.
