But its next man up All of us are prepared Me

first_img“But it’s next man up. All of us are prepared. Me, Rob (Hughes) and Stepfan, and we’re excited for the opportunity in an unfortunate situation.”Taylor had similar things to say, noting that every player in the running back room prepares is if they are going to be the starter and thus prepare accordingly.“So if things do happen, we’re ready to step up,” he said.Should the team be forced to go on without Ellington, a dynamic talent who excels in the run game and as a receiver, it would stand to reason the game plan may change some. How much would likely depend on in-game situations.“But I don’t think it changes too much,” Dwyer said. “Obviously there are some things we might have to tweak, but I think that all of us will be able to do the same things. We’re all capable of doing everything. We’re all different, but we all can do everything. All of us are every-down backs, and we’re ready for the challenge.”Dwyer (27), Taylor (8) and Hughes (2) have combined to make 37 career receptions. Last season, Ellington had 39. “These are NFL players,” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “They better be ready to play no matter what. Everybody has qualities and things they can do; we’ll just take advantage of that. But right now, it is what it is.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. — The final injury report for the Arizona Cardinals’ Week 1 matchup with the San Diego Chargers has been released, and running back Andre Ellington is listed as “questionable” on it. The second-year running back has been battling a foot issue that reports have said could keep him out multiple weeks. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported Sunday morning Ellington’s issue is with the peroneus longus in his foot. “So you just keep on rolling.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling If anything, it’s a little uncertain.Arians said Ellington or not, the team’s running backs all have their defined roles and parts in the game plan, so whatever his status is Monday will not change much in that regard. Goodwin agreed.“Our general philosophy is this, alright: next man up,” he said. “Whoever’s in there is in there. Who knows what’s going to happen. You’ll see who’s out there on Monday, but next man up. That’s our philosophy.”Indeed it is. The phrase was used last season while the team suffered through injuries, and has been repeated over and over again this season after key players were lost to free agency, suspensions and more injuries. Both Dwyer and Taylor brought it up when asked about possibly having to fill in for Ellington, showing no hint of trepidation or concern over what could be an increased role Monday night. It’s exactly the mentality Arians wants his team to have, even if he’d rather they didn’t need to turn to it as often as they’ve needed to.“It happens, and when it happens and the next guy steps up, then you know the mantra works,” Arians said. “And it has and it will continue. There’s going to be a bunch more bumps in the road down this stretch of games, and we can’t worry about injuries because nobody cares except us. Everybody else is happy about them. Asked about Ellington’s status Saturday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he will be a game-time decision for Monday night, but added “there’s no doubt” he saw enough from the running back to believe he could suit up for the season opener.“Good, good,” he said about how Ellington has been moving around. “For him, everything’s good.”But, he admitted, what’s ailing Ellington is the type of thing that could feel different on a day-to-day basis.“It’s one of those things that every day when you wake up could be different,” he said. Of course, Ellington waking up Monday feeling good would be ideal, but if he’s not able to go the team will likely turn to Jonathan Dwyer and Stepfan Taylor in the running game. In four seasons with the Steelers, Dwyer amassed 971 yards and two touchdowns on 230 carries, while Taylor gained 115 yards on 36 carries as a rookie for the Cardinals last season.“I’ve been in this situation before,” Dwyer said Friday, before Ellington’s ‘questionable’ status was known. “The standard is the standard. It’s unfortunate that our brother is injured right now, but we know he’ll be back. We don’t know when but we know that everything is going to be alright with him.
