Rashad Johnson to sit out; Ellington too

Posted by Darren Urban on December 20, 2015 – 4:59 pm

The Cardinals will be without their coach on the field tonight. Safety Rashad Johnson, who didn’t practice all week because of an ankle injury, is inactive for the game against the Eagles. What will be interesting now is how the Cardinals account for that — Tony Jefferson is officially being listed as the starter in Johnson’s place.

Running back Andre Ellington (toe) isn’t going to play either.

The full inactive list:

— QB Matt Barkley

— RB Andre Ellington (toe)

— S Rashad Johnson (ankle)

— LB Shaq Riddick

— T D.J. Humphries

— DT Cory Redding (ankle)

—  NT Xavier Williams

    Late 2nd qtr… Already 3 John Brown DROPS… I tried to channel Arians in an earlier post. Go short and mid to Fells, Fitz and Floyd….That’s working. No more bombs necessary. We can blow out the Eagles straight up. Eagles set up double team on the bombs…risky…

    Just look at DJohnson on that run at 4 minutes 2nd qtr. Incredible.!! BA…save the fancy stuff for another day… We have our future super-back…

    Seattle & Green Bay won already…we need this one…later… Deaf ears; I know. Just concerned..

    Just our luck……Honey Badger injured on a meaningless play when clinching the NFL West……..we are cursed……….seen that injury hundreds of times……torn ACL or MCL…….done for the season………..UNBELIEVABLE!

    And THAT, folks, is how the West was won!!! SWEET win and it is amazing all the milestones that were accomplished tonight. Never a better team to beat for a win like this than the Eagles! For me, anyway. I hate them.

    Five prime-time games, all wins, and I took off the day after all of them. I have another blissful day off again tomorrow. I’ve used five vacation days to do this. And one day at a time, it has been one of the best vacations I have ever had! 🙂 Gotta get to bed. But….Honey Badger’s knee?? Please, no. My lord, did he REALLY need to be in the game at that point???

    Scary night with Palmer’s finger….DJ’s knee….can we get lucky three times with Mathieu’s knee, too?? We’ve come too far to have that killer injury now.

    Such a pleasure to watch DJ run. I LOVE his patience. With his blocking now getting better, too, it looks like this kid can do it ALL. For what it’s worth, I think he stayed in the game a little too long, too.

    I will kneel and pray tonite for good news with the Honey Badger.

    Good game against the Eagles. Eagles were playing in prime time, plus two impressive wins. A big time game for them. They gave it their all — but Cards prevailed.

    Injuries lets hope that the following players are Ok for the rest of the season:

    Rashad Johnson, Andre Ellington, Carson Palmer, David Johnson and of course Tyrann Mathieu.

    Defensively of course Mathieu and Peterson played excellent. So did Buchanan, and Marcus Golden.

    One of the many fallacies of Chip Kelly’s hurry-up offensive, is that it far too much pressure and field time on their defensive.

    O-line played great.

    Kicking game was faulty. Catman missed an extra point, and did not put the ball deep into the endzone upon kickoffs. Butler was simply bad.

    Cards Fans, what a fantastic thumping of the Eagles!! Stats are important, but not as much as the guaranteed win. With a big lead nearing the end of a game, some of our key players should give way to the backups so save their bodies…We all know who those players are…our team MVPs this year. I want JBrown to remain healthy as well…double & triple team at the Eagles…!!??

    Praying for Mathieu…I have said all year that he is our MVP on the defense this year…no doubt…later fans…

    Below is a copy of my post from a couple days ago. By this, we know now who we are and how we can succeed…not necessary to take risks just because you can….

    (((Dec 19th – – And for Arians the rest of the way, he needs to be particular about the long bombs over the top so it can be somewhat a surprise. Last week, JBrown was double teamed a bunch…lucky we didn’t have an INT. I love the shorter shots to Fitz and the medium/long jump balls to Floyd…much more a sure thing, even though the opponent knows it’s coming. These two guys can play defense if they can’t bring the ball down. JBrown can get hammered if he is not a step ahead of the CB.

    These next few games are on BA and Palmer…the receivers are a constant given… And I look forward to DJohnson banging and breaking out. Gonna be fun to watch these coming games…Later Cards Fans… We got this…!)))
