Ellington, who was cut by the Patriots earlier Wednesday, was released with an injury designation, Mike Reiss of reports.
The Patriots didn't specify what kind of injury Ellington is dealing with, but it's likely related to the persistent hamstring issues he's dealt with throughout his career. The wideout had part of his hamstring removed after tearing it in 2016 and has now ended each of the past three seasons on injured reserve due to hamstring complications.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Ellington was a waiver-wire pickup during training camp last year and emerged with a bigger-than-anticipated role when Will Fuller opened the season on IR with a shoulder injury. Ellington overtook Braxton Miller on the depth chart and caught a career-high 29 passes. He tied for second on the team in receptions and red-zone targets, behind only DeAndre Hopkins, even while missing the final four games with a hamstring injury. Ellington showed some chemistry during his seven-game run with quarterback Deshaun Watson and averaged 54 snaps per game (74.2 percent) over his 12 games. Although he's not a prototypical slot receiver, he enters training camp as the Texans' third wideout, with his main competition coming from Miller and rookie Keke Coutee.
Injuries have limited Ellington early in his career, and 2016 was no different when he missed the entire season with a hamstring injury. With a new general manager and head coach in town, the team has already acquired alternative options for the slot (Marquis Goodwin, Aldrick Robinson and Trent Taylor), leaving the 2014 fourth-round draft pick in danger of losing his spot on the team in training camp, assuming he shows up in good health.
Ellington hasn't done much in his first two seasons with San Francisco, amassing just 215 receiving yards and three total touchdowns in that span. With the club seemingly having moved on from veteran Anquan Boldin, Ellington had a legitimate chance to be the 49ers' slot receiver in 2016 due to his size (5-foot-9) and quickness, but was placed on IR in August.
The 49ers drafted the speedy Ellington in 2014 with hopes of injecting some energy into their slow receiving corps. He didn't make a huge impact in his rookie season, but showed flashes with 90 total yards and three touchdowns on just 12 touches, adding contributions in the return game. With veterans Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson, and Brandon Lloyd gone, touches remain up for grabs among the group of receivers behind Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin. Ellington will have to beat out Quinton Patton and the newly-acquired Jerome Simpson in training camp to have relevance in San Francisco's new-look offense, but he could be a sneaky he could be a sneaky PPR option if he does win the slot receiver position, as Colin Kaepernick could look to get the speedy wideout the rock in space.
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.
