Also dealing with foot and hip injuries, Ellington's year is over after generating 660 yards and three touchdowns on the ground at 3.3 yards per rush. The second-year back also piled up 395 yards and two touchdowns off 46 catches. On the whole, a disappointing campaign after all the offseason hype.
We long doubted the plan by Arians to give Ellington 25 to 30 touches per game, largely because his 5-foot-9, 199-pound frame isn't built for workhorse duties. He never crossed 100 yards on the ground in 12 starts and hasn't topped 42 yards rushing in a game since Week 9.
