by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) reverted to injured reserve Monday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The Eagles cut Ellis with an injury tag last Friday, and he now returns to IR after going unclaimed on waivers. Barring an injury settlement, he'll remain on IR for the rest of the season.

Alex Ellis: Hits waivers with injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived/injured Ellis (knee) on Friday.

Ellis' injury surfaced Wednesday, and the Eagles will open up a roster spot for cornerback depth by waiving Ellis. If he clears waivers, Ellis will revert to the Eagles' injured reserve where he'll remain unless an injury settlement is reached.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Ellis sustained the knee injury during a Week 4 win in Green Bay and did not practice this week. The Eagles will roll with Zach Ertz and Dalls Goedert as their only two tight ends in Week 5.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Not practicing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (knee) did not practice Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Ellis hasn't practiced since suffering a knee injury during Week 4's win over the Packers. He appears on track to miss Sunday's tilt against the Jets, in which case the Eagles will roll with only two healthy tight ends in Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Ellis played five offensive snaps and 16 snaps on special teams in Thursday's win over the Packers and apparently suffered the knee injury. The severity remains unclear, but if the 26-year-old is unable to advance to full participation by Friday, he'll likely receive an injury designation.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday.

This will be Ellis' second stint on the active roster this season, as he was promoted prior to the season opener and sent back down shortly after. The likely reasoning behind the 26-year-old's promotion is to provide depth to the tight end unit as Dallas Goedert battles a calf injury.

Alex Ellis: Waived by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Ellis was promoted from the Eagles' practice squad Friday but only ended up spending a couple days on the 52-man roster. The 26-year-old is a candidate to rejoin the practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Friday.

Ellis originally signed with the Eagles in early August before winding up on the practice squad following final cuts. He'll now join the active roster again and will serve as a depth option at tight end Week 1.

Eagles' Alex Ellis: Signs with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis signed a contract with the Eagles on Friday, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Ellis spent most of the 2018 season on Kansas City's injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, although he appears to be healthy now. With five other tight ends on Philadelphia's roster, the 26-year-old will likely have trouble sticking when it's time to make cuts. The Eagles had a roster spot available after waiving linebacker Joey Alfieri.

Chiefs' Alex Ellis: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (undisclosed) cleared waivers and has reverted to injured reserve, per NFL Communications.

Ellis saw just 11 total snaps in the first two weeks after seizing a 53-man roster spot out of camp, but he will now miss the remainder of 2018, barring an injury settlement. If that's the case, the second-year tight end will take aim at rejoining the mix for the 2019 season.

Alex Ellis: Let go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Chiefs on Tuesday.

The second-year tight end made the 53-man roster out of camp and began the year as the team's No. 2 tight end, though he ended his time with the Chiefs without a catch while playing a total of just 11 offensive snaps. Ellis -- who was inactive for Monday's game against the Broncos -- caught three passes for 11 yards in 2017 for the Jaguars.

Chiefs' Alex Ellis: Makes 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis has earned a spot on the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Ellis will serve as the team's No. 2 tight end for the opener against the Chargers with Demetrius Harris suspended for the contest. It seems likely he will remain on the roster even when Harris gets back, but he will likely be a depth option at the position behind Harris and star tight end Travis Kelce.

Chiefs' Alex Ellis: Claimed by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was claimed off waivers by the Chiefs on Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Ellis, who was released by the Saints on Monday, will provide some additional depth at the tight end position that sports only a couple of players guaranteed a spot in Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris. Ellis signed a future/reserve deal with the Saints prior to last season after appearing in six games for the Jaguars as a rookie in 2016 both on offense and special teams and will attempt to reprise that role with the Chiefs.

Alex Ellis: Cut by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was waived by the Saints on Monday, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

Ellis signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints back in January but won't even make it to OTAs with the team following Monday's move. He'll hope for some interest elsewhere in the NFL, though he's not a lock to make a regular-season roster if he does land another contract. Ellis has seen action in just six career games, all of which came during the 2016 season.

Saints' Alex Ellis: Gets reserve/future deal from New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Ellis to a reserve/future contract Tuesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

Ellis didn't log any NFL action during the past season, but made six appearances for the Jaguars during his rookie campaign in 2016, hauling in three of four targets for 11 yards. He'll join the Saints for their offseason program and could vie for a roster spot at tight end during training camp.

Jaguars' Alex Ellis: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis has been signed to the Jaguars' active roster.

Ellis has been on Jacksonville's practice squad for the majority of his rookie season, but will now join the Jaguars' active roster and serve as a depth option at tight end.

Titans' Alex Ellis: Touchdown in preseason Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis caught both targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss to Carolina.

Ellis boosted his chances of making the Titans roster with a strong red zone performance, but the undrafted free agent's chances are still bleak with established veterans Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, Craig Stevens and Phillip Supernaw already around. He scored just one touchdown in two years with the Tennessee Volunteers, so don't expect a repeat of this performance any time soon.

Titans' Alex Ellis: Catches only target in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis caught his lone target for 10 yards in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chargers.

The undrafted rookie out of Tennessee is attempting to make his local team, but his odds aren't very high. He'll need better production than this to have a chance.
