Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs NE (1 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)

Ellison's one catch came on a play where quarterback Matt Cassel dropped way back and Ellison slipped out to the flat and was wide open. Cassel got him the ball and the H-back turned upfield for a big gain before being brought down. Ellison was on the field for 23 snaps, mostly as a blocker.

2014 Week 4 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)

An H-Back by trade who mostly lined up at the tight end position because Kyle Rudolph is hurt, Rhett Ellison is an athletic option who can run the ball or catch it. He was the target on one pass by rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater where the quarterback made an outstanding playaction fake, drawing in the Atlanta front seven and leaving Ellison wide open in the flat. As there was nobody anywhere near him, Ellison ran the ball upfield, though his lack of speed limited how far he got. Ellison was also the target on a two-point conversion. On the play he motioned into the formation from wide right, then immediately ran a short out route along the front of the end zone. Nobody pursued him and Bridgewater had an easy pass to make for the conversion.
