Biography

NoteCARDS:

• Totaled 1,023 scrimmage yards (652 rushing, 371 receiving) in 2013, becoming just the fifth rookie in franchise history to surpass 1,000 yards from scrimmage in a season and first since Anquan Boldin (1,417) in 2003.

• With 652 rushing yards on just 118 attempts in 2013, Ellington’s 5.53 rushing average led all NFL players with a minimum of 100 rushing attempts. His 5.53 average was the highest total for a Cards RB (min. 100 attempts) in a season since John David Crow averaged 5.85 yards per attempt in 1960 (183 for 1,071).

• Earned the FedEx Ground Player of the Week after piling up 154 rushing yards on 15 attempts in Week 8 vs. Atlanta in his first career NFL start. The performance included an 80-yard TD run that tied for the third-longest run in franchise history.

• In Week 15 at Tennessee, posted 71 rushing yards on 10 attempts (7.1 avg.) and 87 receiving yards on four receptions (21.8 avg.). In doing so, he became just the ninth player in NFL history (dating back to at least 1960) to average 7.0 yards per rush attempt (min. 10 attempts) and 20.0 yards per reception (min. 4 receptions) in a game – and the only rookie.

• With his performance in Tennessee, became just the second rookie in franchise history to post 70+ rushing yards and 80+ receiving yards in a single game, joining Hall of Fame RB Ollie Matson, who accomplished the feat on 10/26/52 vs. Pittsburgh.

• Averaged 5.5 yards per carry for his career at Clemson, never averaging below 5.1 yards per attempt in any of his four seasons.

• One of just four players in Clemson history to rush for 1,000 yards twice in their career.
