Bruce Arians said running back Andre Ellington indeed has a “mild” PCL sprain in his right knee. He suffered it on the 16-yard run the play before he went down for good. Arians is not putting a timeline on Ellington’s return — the Cardinals have avoided putting timelines on injuries of late, which is smart because it lowers the expectations on a return — although he said “it could be one week, it could be three.” The main takeaway is that Ellington isn’t out long-term.
Chris Johnson is the starter, David Johnson the backup. Arians said he doesn’t anticipate adding a running back, and would be OK playing the Johnsons and Stepfan Taylor in Chicago.
Arians also said there were no other injuries suffered that would cause players to miss time.
