Ellerbe (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Ramon Humber and Hau'oli Kikaha will likely flank Stephone Anthony, who is easily the team's strongest IDP option at linebacker. Kikaha does have four sacks and three forced fumbles, but he's averaging just over four tackles per game. Once healthy, Ellerbe could perhaps re-enter the IDP conversation, though it seems more likely he'll have a part-time role.

Ellerbe played through a hip injury in his last appearance in Week 7 but has missed every practice in the meantime, ensuring that his return remains up in the air.
