Ellington, who was cut by the Patriots earlier Wednesday, was released with an injury designation, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

The Patriots didn't specify what kind of injury Ellington is dealing with, but it's likely related to the persistent hamstring issues he's dealt with throughout his career. The wideout had part of his hamstring removed after tearing it in 2016 and has now ended each of the past three seasons on injured reserve due to hamstring complications.
