GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - While Andre Ellington dazzles, the Arizona Cardinals' other running backs will fill less glamorous roles.
Carrying the ball into the heart of a defense, blocking to protect the quarterback and catching the occasional pass out of the backfield are the chores at hand for Stepfan Taylor, Jonathan Dwyer, Robert Hughes and Jalen Parmele. The ability to play special teams helps, too, and will go a long way toward determining which of the backs are in uniform on Sundays.
Ellington, with speed and extreme maneuverability, is the starter, but he is at his best in the open field, and he probably won't get many runs up the middle as the Cardinals try to ease the wear and tear on their prize second-year back.
