Ravens' Justin Ellis: Set to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis will start at nose tackle Sunday versus the Eagles because Brandon Williams is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Ellis has played in four games this season as a backup to Williams, and he's recorded just one tackle. The veteran will have an increased role Sunday, and he'll look to disrupt a banged-up Eagles' offensive line. Miles Sanders is a major concern for the Ravens' defense, and Ellis will be responsible for pressuring Carson Wentz as well.

Ravens' Justin Ellis: Back with Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens and Ellis agreed to terms on a one-year contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ellis operated in a reserve role for the Ravens after he signed with the team as a free agent in November of last season. The 29-year-old is expected to play a similar role in 2020 behind a stacked defensive front that has added the likes of Calais Campbell to the fold. Ellis supplied just six tackles (two solo) across four regular-season contests in 2019.

Ravens' Justin Ellis: Minimal role in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis recorded six tackles (two solo) across four regular-season contests in 2019.

Ellis joined the Ravens as a free agent in early November, after which point he played a reserve role along the team's defensive line. The 29-year-old veteran is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Ravens' Justin Ellis: Finds new home in Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ravens signed Ellis to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ellis injured his knee during the preseason while playing for the Raiders, and he was eventually released from IR. The 28-year-old is healthy now, and he'll provide depth since Daylon Mack (knee) was placed on IR and Michael Pierce (ankle) is considered day-to-day. Nose tackle Domata Peko, who is six years older than Ellis, was also signed for the same purpose.

Justin Ellis: Works out with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) had a workout with the Chargers on Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Ellis was waived off injured reserve by the Raiders in early October but now appears recovered from the knee injury. The 28-year-old was limited to six games with Oakland last season due to a foot injury and totaled seven tackles.

Justin Ellis: Released off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) was released off injured reserve by the Raiders on Tuesday, Myles Simmons of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Ellis went down with the knee injury in late August and ended up on the shelf shortly thereafter. The 28-year-old played only six games in 2018 due to a foot injury, but he's now free to sign elsewhere once healthy.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the league's official transactions report.

Ellis spent much of the 2018 season on IR with a foot injury and will now miss the entire 2019 campaign due to a new issue. His absence will allow P.J. Hall and Maurice Hurst to play increased defensive roles.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Dealing with new injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said Sunday that Ellis is dealing with a knee injury and his status for Week 1 is unclear, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ellis is coming off a season in which we was placed on IR with a foot injury and is now dealing with further injury. It's unclear how the Louisiana Tech product picked up the nick, but the fact that he could miss Week 1 means it's at least a multiweek injury. If Ellis can't go for the start of the regular season, P.J Hall and Maurice Hurst would be candidates to draw the start at defensive tackle.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Returns from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (foot) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Coach Jon Gruden said earlier in the week Ellis would be activated ahead of Sunday's game and he now officially makes his return. The 27-year-old suffered the foot sprain Week 1 against the Rams but is ready to return to his role as a depth defensive tackle for the Raiders heading into Week 13.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Expected to return Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Eyeing Week 13 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Set to resume practice next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Still not back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (foot) is not practicing Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Ellis was placed on injured reserve after sustaining a foot injury Week 1 and has yet to return from practice. The fifth-year pro appeared on track to report to practice in late October, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com, but still remains sidelined. It appears unlikely that Ellis will return to the field before Week 12 at the earliest.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Expected to practice this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said that Ellis (foot) is expected to return to practice this week, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Ellis is a candidate to return from injured reserve if he's able to return to full health. The fifth-year pro sustained strained ligaments in his foot during Oakland's loss to the Rams in Week 1, and should be approaching the end of his recovery timeline. Ellis' eventual return to practice should shed some light on his chances of playing again this season.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Heading to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders are placing Ellis (foot) on injured reserve, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Ellis injured his foot in Monday's game against the Rams, and it will cost him extended time. However, Gehlken indicates that the Raiders expect him to resume practice when first eligible in six weeks and plan to activate him later on in the campaign. The team signed veteran Jonathan Hankins to replace him on the 53-man roster.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Dealing with strained ligaments in foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Injures ankle Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis injured his ankle in Monday's season opening loss to the Rams, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Ellis failed to record any statistics in Week 1, but he did come out of the contest with an injured ankle. The severity of the issue is unknown at this time, but expect an update on his status from the Raiders as the week progresses.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Agrees to extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis and the Raiders have reached agreement on a three-year contract for more than $15 million, including $6 million guaranteed, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A 2014 fourth-round selection, Ellis only has one-half of a sack in 60 NFL games, but he's made 41 starts and piled up 112 tackles, including a career-best 48 last season. He'll likely continue in his role as Oakland's starting nose tackle, exiting the field for most passing downs.

Raiders' Justin Ellis: Trio of tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis made three tackles (three solo) in his season debut Sunday against the Saints.

Ellis was presented with many opportunities to stop the Saints' rushing attack, as they ran the ball just 22 times throughout the entire game. He should have a bigger role Week 2 against running back Devonta Freeman and the Falcons.
