Ellerbe (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Ellerbe is still awaiting his season debut while he continues to recover from the quad injury. He wasn't able to practice at all this week, so it's difficult to pinpoint when exactly Ellerbe might be back.
The Saints released Brown (calf) with an injury settlement Thursday, removing him from injured reserve, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Brown joined the Saints in May, adding a veteran presence to a receiving corps lacking in experience. However, he failed his pre-training camp physical due to a strained calf, which will bring his brief tenure in New Orleans to a close. The severity of the injury will likely determine when he receives a chance with another organization.
Mitchel (hamstring) has been released by the Colts after reaching an injury settlement with the team, George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin reports.
Mitchel missed all of last season due to injury, and entered this season on the IR. He injured his hamstring in the team's final preseason game. The 24-year-old has yet to play in a regular season game.
