Ellis (undisclosed) returned to practice on Sunday, Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports.
Ellis began camp on the physically unable to perform list but no reason was ever given for it. Now that he's been cleared to return to practice look for him to compete with the second and third team for a spot on the tail end of the depth chart.
Ellis' placement on the PUP list comes as a bit of a surprise, but at this point his condition doesn't seem to be too severe. When he's able to return, he'll be competing for a spot at the tail end of the defensive tackle depth chart for Minnesota.
Ellis played nine games after spending time with the Giants earlier in the season and had 15 tackles in a reserve role.
