To make room on the roster, the team decided to waive offensive linemen Mark LeVoir from the 53-man roster.

Burgess, who was cut at the conclusion of training camp, was re-signed after cornerback Domonique Foxworth was placed on injured reserve Sept. 28. The veteran linebacker was then cut again during the bye week to make room for cornerback and return specialist Bryan McCann on Oct. 4.

Ellerbe was inactive for the Ravens’ Week 4 victory over the New York Jets before returning to action against Houston on Sunday.

As for LeVoir, he was inactive against Houston on Sunday and quickly fell out of favor when he struggled playing in the place of injured left guard Ben Grubbs against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2. LeVoir was shut down the following week in St. Louis against the Rams, and was only made active in week four against the New York Jets because the Ravens’ had seven inactive players miss the game due to injuries.

The former Patriots linemen was brought in by the team on Aug. 20 to add depth, but five-time Pro Bowler Andre Gurode has filled in for Grubbs, starting the last three games at left guard.

Burgess has had three different stints with the Ravens since being drafted by the team in 2007. Last season, he led the special teams unit in tackles.
