For the second straight day, Andre Ellington was missing from the practice field.

Ellington is still recovering from a sprained knee he suffered in the team's Week 1 win vs. the Saints.

However, earlier in the week, head coach Bruce Arians declined to rule Ellington out of Sunday's game, not "until it's game time."

If Ellington is unable to suit up, Chris Johnson is expected to start in his place, with rookie David Johnson also seeing a much larger role.
