Cardinals | Rashard Mendenhall not helping his cause
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 10:35:56 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Rashard Mendenhall fumbled twice and dropped a key pass in the team's Week 4 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he also scampered out of bounds late in the game when the team was trying to run out the clock. "Rashard had a very tough day and he can't play that way. He can't run out of bounds. He's a veteran. And to run out of bounds at the end of the game, that was probably the worst mistake he made all day. We need to practice him a little bit harder. I think we've been too easy on him in practice because of his injuries, and we need to hone him up more because he's not gaining anything," head coach Bruce Arians said.

Mendenhall has been dealing with nagging injuries, which has limited his practice time during the week. His play has been pretty disappointing, and Andre Ellington continued to look good Sunday. If Mendy continues to struggle, don't be surprised if Ellington gets more touches. Ellington is worth owning as a handcuff to Mendenhall in deeper setups.
