Ellington misses second straight practice

TEMPE, Ariz. – Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington didn’t practice for the second straight day, putting his status for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants in doubt.

Ellington is suffering from a left foot injury and spent the open portion of practice Thursday on a stationary bike alongside linebacker Alex Okafor, who also didn’t practice because of a thigh injury. Defensive tackle Frostee Rucker, who missed practice as well, was running on an outside field during the open portion.

Ellington was limited twice last week and missed last Friday’s practice before playing Monday night.

Okafor and Rucker aren’t expected to play.

Safety Rashad Johnson was the only change on Thursday’s injury report. He was upgraded to fully practicing.

Right guard Paul Fanaika (knee) was limited again, as were quarterback Carson Palmer (right shoulder) and punter Dave Zastudil (left groin).

Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) practiced fully.
