Andre Ellington's run with the Arizona Cardinals is over.

The Cardinals cut Ellington on Monday, a day after the team made the running back a healthy scratch prior to its 31-21 loss to the Houston Texans.

In a separate move, the Cardinals signed former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Bronson Hill to their practice squad.

With Adrian Peterson and Kerwynn Williams handling the rushing duties for the Cardinals, it appears Ellington was expendable. The 28-year-old didn't start a game this season and was limited to just 53 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.

The fifth-year veteran stands a good chance of being claimed on waivers. Ellington almost certainly will not replicate the kind of numbers he compiled in consecutive 600-yard seasons at the start of his NFL career, but he could provide a decent stop-gap solution for a team in need of a more balanced offense.
