Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington has been dealing with a knee injury this week, which limited him in practice. Heading in to today’s big game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Ellington is officially listed on the practice report as questionable, but it appears that he will be able to suit up.
Ellington will be a game-time decision, but when the inactives are released about 90 minutes prior to kickoff we should expect to see that he has been given the green light to suit up.
From Albert Breer of the NFL Network:
Per Cardinals source, Andre Ellington will play today, barring a setback in warmups.

Ellington tweaked his knee at Thursday’s practice, but it doesn’t appear that the injury was severe enough to keep him out of the team’s important Week 13 match up.
Arizona and Philadelphia are currently in the mix for one of the NFC Wild Card spots with just a few weeks remaining in the regular season, so a win here would help the team keep their postseason dreams alive.
