Ellis expects resolution with Cowboys

SAN ANTONIO -- One way or another, injured and disgruntled Dallas Cowboys' linebacker Greg Ellis is about to resolve the drama involving his relationship with the team.

Ellis said Saturday that an announcement about his status is coming by the end of the week. He stuck by that Sunday, explaining the announcement will "clarify the air and know what we can expect the rest of the season."

The former North Carolina star began worrying whether the team still wanted him before last season. That was when Bill Parcells moved him from defensive end to linebacker. He did just fine until tearing an Achilles' tendon in mid-November.

Ellis' concerns resurfaced in April when the Cowboys used their top pick on someone who plays his position.

The Cowboys want him at linebacker because he was tied for the team lead in sacks when he was hurt and the defense sagged without him.
