Bruce Ellington: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Ellington (leg) has yet to return to practice and is doubtful to play Sunday against the Cowboys, CSN Bay Area reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ellington continues to nurse a leg strain that has held him out of the 49ers' offseason program. The injury is poorly timed, as Ellington is currently involved in two separate position battles - slot receiver and return specialist - but is slipping in both races due to the injury. There is still no timetable for his return.
Ellington's (leg) teammate Jerome Simpson will be suspended for the first six games of the season, according to the San Jose Mercury News

2014

Ellington was a luxury pick for a 49ers team that didn't have many needs, but the undersized speedster adds a dimension to the receiving corps than players like Anquan Boldin and Stevie Johnson don't possess. He could develop into a dangerous weapon out of the slot, but don't expect much impact from him as a rookie.
