Saints’ Ellerbe on IR

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

The New Or­leans Saints have placed in­jury-plagued line­backer Dan­nell Ellerbe on in­jured re­serve in a move that ap­pears to fore­cast the end of the club’s re­la­tion­ship with the vet­eran de­fender. Ellerbe ini­tially was set to open train­ing camp on the phys­i­cally un­able to per­form list, but his move to in­jured re­serve means he won’t play for the Saints this sea­son. The NFL Net­work has re­ported that Ellerbe is ex­pected to be re­leased once his foot in­jury heals so he may sign with an­other club. Ellerbe missed more than half of the Saints’ games the past two seasons com­bined, and the Saints have added sev­eral lineback­ers this off­sea­son. Still, Ellerbe was pro­duc­tive when healthy. Last sea­son, he made 44 tack­les with 4 sacks in 9 games. Saints train­ing camp opens to­day.
