Coach Jon Gruden said Monday that Ellis (foot) will be activated from injured reserve Week 13, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Ellis initially resumed practicing Nov. 21 and appears to be nearing a return to the active roster. The fifth-year pro seems to have fully recovered from a sprained foot sustained Week 1 of the regular season. When he's able to retake the field, Ellis will serve as a special teams piece and depth defensive tackle.
Ellis (foot) could be activated off Injured Reserve in advance of Oakland's Week 13 matchup with Kansas City, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports. Ellis sprained his foot in Week 1 leading to his placement on IR. He returned to practice but has yet to be placed on the active roster. If he does return, he'll figure to serve as a backup defensive tackle and special teams player.
Ellis (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Ellis will participate in practice for the first time since suffering a foot sprain Week 1. The 27-year-old's return kicks off a three-week evaluation window, during which time the Raiders must decide whether to activate him off IR or opt to keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season. Because Ellis has already spent the required eight weeks on injured reserve, he is eligible to suit up as soon as the Raiders activate him.
Ellis (foot) is expected to return to practice next week, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Ellis suffered the foot sprain in the season opener and Sunday will mark his ninth game spent on injured reserve. The 27-year-old's return to practice will begin a 21-day window in which the Raiders must decide whether to activate him off IR or keep him on the shelf for the duration of the season.
Ellis sustained strained ligaments in his foot in Monday's season-opening loss to the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Raiders are labeling Ellis as week-to-week with the injury, making it unlikely he'll be ready to play Sunday in Denver. After tallying 48 stops in 16 games in 2017, Ellis was shut out of the tackle column across 52 snaps in the Week 1 loss before departing. In addition to Ellis, fellow defensive tackles P.J. Hall (ankle) and Brian Price (hamstring) are also nursing injuries, which could prompt the Raiders to sign Johnathan Hankins to shore up the line, according to Rapoport.
