New Orleans Saints' Dannell Ellerbe back at practice with first-team

By this point, we know that Sean Payton doesn't give up much in terms of information about injuries to his players. Fortunately, though, the New Orleans Saints just recently got linebacker Dannell Ellerbe back in action on Sunday. Best of all, we got an idea of where Ellerbe would be playing.

According to Katherine Terrell of, Ellerbe jump in with the first-team defense next to rookie Stephone Anthony.

With Ellerbe playing at the Will position more than likely, he called it a spot where he feels more comfortable.

"I'm back at my original position, so I guess, yeah, I feel more comfortable, but my second year when I got hurt in Miami when I got hurt I was back in my old position too, at weakside . It's just really about getting reps," he told

Ellerbe is one of many intriguing options at linebacker for New Orleans this season, but he has a great opportunity in front of him to play a big role. If the early practices are any indication, Ellerbe could see quite a bit of playing time in 2015.
