DL Kenrick Ellis will serve 45 days in jail, beginning June 15. He has entered an 'Alford' plea, which basically admits the prosecutors can prove their case but doesn't admit to being guilty. Ellis will not miss any OTAs or mini-camps, but will miss the first few days of training camp. According to Brian Costello, "The specifics of the plea are 179 days in jail, with 89 days suspended, which leaves 90 days. In VA that is cut in half so it is 45 days."
For a second year player who needs all the training with Karl Dunbar that he can get, the news is not ideal, but considering the options, is pretty close. Let's just hope we don't have any more issues with Ellis, or any other players, for that matter.
