WR - FA
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Patriots are bringing in Bruce Ellington on a one-year deal.
Ellington visited the Patriots earlier today and the team apparently liked what they saw. The former fourth-round pick of the 49ers, Ellington spent time with both the Texans and Lions in 2018. New England doesn't have much receiver depth right now, but they will surely bring in more competition as the off-season goes on. Ellington will likely have to fight for his spot on the 53-man roster.
Bruce Ellington has been ruled out Week 16 due to a hamstring injury.
Ellington will remain out with the injury. His absence will mean even more targets for Kenny Golladay, assuming the questionable Golladay suits up against the Vikings this weekend.
Bruce Ellington was a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to his hamstring injury.
Ellington was forced to sit Week 15, but he's trending toward returning this weekend against the Vikings. While it's not a great matchup, the Lions figure to be playing from behind and given Ellington's target share when healthy he could be a desperation WR3/flex play in PPR leagues.
Bruce Ellington has been ruled out for Week 15's contest against the Bills due to his hamstring injury.
Ellington suffered the injury Week 14, and he's unable to get healthy in time for Week 15's matchup against the Bills. This is going to be another ugly week for the Lions. Kenny Golladay will likely see all the targets he can handle, but it's not a great matchup for the Lions' No. 1 WR.
Bruce Ellington was forced out of the Lions 17-3 win over the Cardinals with a hamstring injury in the third quarter and did not return. He finished with four receptions for 17 yards.
Ellington's injury continues to thin out the Lions receiving corp ahead of their Week 15 matchup with the Bills. Ellington had at least four receptions in all four games with the Lions but his status for next week will be in question.
