Ellerbe (hamstring) was a full go at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe was considered to be a limited participant Wednesday, so today's session seemed to signify that Ellerbe will be playing in Super Bowl LII, barring a setback. Najee Goode would likely see his snaps rolled back if Ellerbe does indeed play next Sunday.

Ellerbe (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Vikings, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe was able to practice in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday, but was not deemed healthy enough to suit up in Sunday's contest. As a result, expect Najee Goode to see an increased role in Philadelphia's defensive scheme.

Ellerbe (hamstring) is listed as active for Saturday's showdown against the Falcons, Tim McManus of ESPN.com

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe had been trending in this direction, as he was able to log a full practice Thursday. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, look for him to take on as much as he can handle at middle linebacker.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson hinted that Ellerbe would likely serve as the team's starting middle linebacker Week 17 against the Cowboys, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

During Monday's 19-10 win over the Raiders, Ellerbe logged four tackles and played 27 of 69 defensive snaps, good for third among the team's linebackers. However, because the Eagles typically deploy five defensive backs rather than three linebackers, it's unlikely that Ellerbe's 'Mike' linebacker role will yield a more substantial increase in snap share in future contests, thereby limiting his tackle counts. The 32-year-old Ellerbe, who has one 100-tackle campaign on his resume, looks like a part-time player at this stage of his career.

Ellerbe is set to sign with the Eagles on Monday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe should provide the Eagles with much added linebacking depth. At 31 years old, Ellerbe has played in 77 career games and has racked up 42 starts over those games. He'll likely start with special teams before taking on a bigger role with the defense.

Ellerbe (foot) was officially released from the Saints' injured reserve list Friday, Josh Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

This has been the plan all along after the 31-year-old veteran suffered yet another injury in late July. The Saints just needed to wait until Ellerbe received medical clearance to return to football activities before letting him go, which happened Friday morning. It'll be interesting to see if any teams quickly look to scoop up the oft-injured linebacker, as he could still be an effective piece when healthy.

EDGE Analysis

Ellerbe was cleared to play earlier Friday morning, so his release from IR was imminent. He is now free to sign with any team he chooses as a free agent, and he Ellerbe will likely get multiple suitor from around the league despite his poor injury history.
