Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers from the Cardinals.
The Texans needed help at running back after D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') was lost for the season. Averaging a healthy nine yards on 33 receptions, it remains surprising that Ellington was cut loose by the Cardinals. He should see immediate playing time for the Texans, and will help keep plodder Alfred Blue off the field behind Lamar Miller. What Ellington is unlikely to do is provide legitimate PPR value in the Texans' Tom Savage-led offense. Nov 21 - 4:24 PM

Arizona Sports' Mike Jurecki expects the Cardinals to use a running back committee in the absence of David Johnson (wrist).

Johnson is fully expected to miss multiple weeks and is possibly headed to I.R. Playing from behind much of the day, the Cardinals used Andre Ellington on 20 snaps, Kerwynn Williams for nine, and Elijhaa Penny on one. Jurecki expects all three to get work, and projects Williams to "between the tackles," Penny in "short yardage," and Ellington in the "passing game." Williams is probably the preferred add off waiver wires this week, but it's clear nobody is going to replace Johnson as a true workhorse in the desert. D.J. Foster was also just signed off the Patriots' practice squad. Buck Allen and Tarik Cohen are preferred adds over Williams.
