For Ellington, Cards coach Bruce Arians said being out of the walking boot was “good for Wednesday”.  However he remained limited in practice, so take that bit of news for what it’s worth.  This is likely to be an issue for most of the season.  Taking a hit to the ribs on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders didn’t help much either.  His foot has been an issue since week one though.

As for Campbell, it is somewhat disappointing to hear that he wasn’t practicing.  No word on what his status will be for the rest of the week.  If he doesn’t practice this week, he is likely to miss his third game since suffering an MCL strain on October 5th on an illegal chop block by Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas.

Also limited on Wednesday was receiver John Brown and cornerback Rashad Johnson.  Quarterback Carson Palmer is all the way back.  He is practicing in full today.
