Without providing details, the Bills made the announcement in a release issued Saturday night.

Ellis' absence will further deplete an already thin defense, which will be missing four starters, including cornerback Leodis McKelvin, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve Thursday. Reserve defensive tackle John McCargo also is out because of a calf injury.
