Ellerbee is a candidate to be added to the active roster for Week 9 against the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Ellerbee and fellow linebacker Nate Hall could get the call from the practice squad while the Texans cope with COVID-19. Three linebackers -- Jacob Martin, Dylan Cole and Whitney Mercilus -- are unavailable Sunday, and Kyle Emanuel (concussion) is out, leaving them thin at linebacker.
The Texans signed Ellerbee (undisclosed) to the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The Seahawks waived Ellerbee from IR a couple of weeks ago, and now that the linebacker is healthy, he'll sign with his hometown team with hopes of working his way up the depth chart.
The Seahawks waived Ellerbee (undisclosed) from injured reserve Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Ellerbee and the Seahawks agreed to an injury settlement, so Ellerbee will seek a new team once he's fully healthy.
Ellerbee (undisclosed) reverted to Seattle's IR on Sunday after having been waived/injured by the team, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Ellerbee spent the entire 2019 campaign on injured reserve due to an undisclosed issue, and it now looks as though he'll spend the 2020 season in a similar fashion barring an injury settlement. The 23-year-old will focus his efforts on getting fully healthy.
Ellebee (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks on Saturday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Ellerbee played in seven games between the Chargers and Seahawks last season and finished the year in Seattle without recording a tackle. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 22-year-old will now be out for the season unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
