Vikings signed DT Kenrick Ellis.

He'll provide depth at defensive tackle following the loss of Shamar Stephen. A longtime Jets reserve, Ellis was released by the Giants earlier this season.

Giants signed DT Kenrick Ellis.

Ellis spent the offseason with the Giants but was surprisingly let go at final cuts. He will provide depth with Cullen Jenkins (hamstring) and Markus Kuhn (knee) injured.

Free agent DT Kenrick Ellis visited the Panthers this week.

Ellis was cut by the Giants over the weekend after they claimed NT Louis Nix off waivers. At 6'4/346, Ellis operates as a space-eating nose against the run.

Giants released DT Kenrick Ellis.

Ellis lost his roster spot to fellow DT Louis Nix, who was claimed off waivers from the Texans. Ellis' one-year deal in March included $500,000 guaranteed.

Giants signed DT Kenrick Ellis, formerly of the Jets, to a one-year contract.

It's a depth signing for the Giants, who already have Johnathan Hankins and Cullen Jenkins starting at the two tackle positions. Ellis managed 12 tackles in 14 games for the Jets last season. Coming from a crowded defensive line with the Jets, Ellis should see more playing time with the G-Men. He is a 27-year-old, two-down run stuffer who stands a gargantuan 6-foot-4, 346.

Free agent DT Kenrick Ellis is visiting the Giants on Tuesday.

A 2011 fourth-rounder, Ellis played 158 snaps on defense last season, mostly manning the nose. Ellis has made only five career starts, zero of which came in 2014.
Tue, Mar 17, 2015 03:03:00 PM

Jets declared NT Kenrick Ellis, WR/KR Jalen Saunders, CB Dee Milliner, T Ben Ijalana, LB IK Enemkpali, T Dakota Dozier and LB A.J. Edds inative for Week 4 against Detroit.

Ellis and Saunders are surprise inactives. Ellis has only played 32 defensive snaps this season, and Saunders muffed a punt in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Bears. Milliner is week to week with a quad injury.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 11:51:00 AM

Jets NT Kenrick Ellis (back) is questionable for Sunday's Week 1 game against the Bucs.

Ellis was limited in practice this week and will likely be a game-time decision. Damon Harrison has put together a strong preseason and could draw the start.
Sat, Sep 7, 2013 07:01:00 PM

Jets NT Kenrick Ellis was forced from New York's Week 11 game against the Rams with a knee injury, but later returned.

Ellis was making his first appearance since going down in Week 5 with a knee injury, so the Jets have dodged a bullet.
Sun, Nov 18, 2012 03:28:00 PM

The Jets now say NT Kenrick Ellis will miss 4-6 weeks with a "significant" knee injury.

It sounds like Ellis has a tear in his MCL. The Jets were already giving up 172.4 yards per game on the ground and now figure to be even worse. Colts rookie RB Vick Ballard has a plus matchup as he gets his first NFL start Sunday.
Thu, Oct 11, 2012 11:55:00 AM

Jets NT Kenrick Ellis (knee) will reportedly miss a maximum of four weeks.

This is more bad news for a struggling Jets defense that ranks 31st against the run. With Sione Pouha also banged up, the Jets could be forced to turn to undrafted rookie Ramon Harrison at nose tackle. Things are shaping up quite nicely for Vick Ballard and the Colts running game in Week 6.
Wed, Oct 10, 2012 05:11:00 PM

Jets NT Kenrick Ellis reportedly suffered an MCL sprain in Monday night's loss to the Texans.

The hits keep coming for the Jets, as Ellis is expected to miss at least two weeks. Ellis was replaced by undrafted rookie Damon Harrison on Monday night.
Tue, Oct 9, 2012 11:19:00 AM

Jets NT Kenrick Ellis left Monday night's game against the Texans with a knee injury.

Ellis started for the injured Sione Pouha and was forced from the game in the fourth quarter. Undrafted rookie Damon Harrison stepped in for Ellis.
Mon, Oct 8, 2012 11:31:00 PM

Jets DT Kenrick Ellis will reportedly escape NFL suspension for a misdemeanor assault and battery conviction.

Ellis was given a 45-day sentence for the incident, dating back to Hampton University in 2010. Having already served half of the sentence, Ellis will wait until next offseason to serve the other half. Ellis' NFL career has not been affected by the conviction.
