Monday, 8 October 2018
Anthony Miles and Corey Ellis are traded to Gold Coast.

The Suns will also receive Richmond's third-round pick from 2019, while Gold Coast will hand back their third-round pick from 2019.

"Anthony and Corey played well above VFL level this year and we understand their desire to seek new opportunities," Tigers football manager Neil Balme said.

"Milesy is the ultimate professional and has given our football club wonderful service over the past five years.

"At just 21 years old, Corey is a talented footballer and has a bright future ahead of him."

Sunday, 11 February 2018
After struggling with injuries and surgeries in previous years, Corey Ellis is excited about 2018 after finally putting together an entire summer of training.

"It feels amazing, because you're finally going into games thinking that you've done the work," Ellis said.

"I've got the kilometres in my body and have done the hard work, so it's more of a relief than anything, knowing that you've had a pre-season and you're ready to go."

The actual problem went undiagnosed until he was drafted, which was when the Tigers identified the fragment - plus the fact it wasn't a matter of 'if' he'd develop the same pain in his left foot, it was 'when'.

"They said, 'We just don't know when it will get sore it could be never, it could be next week," he said.

"I was just waiting for it to happen, and then it happened towards the end of my first year."

Wednesday, 1 June 2016
Corey Ellis signs a new two-year deal with Richmond that will keep him at the club until the end of 2018.
Tuesday, 28 July 2015
Corey Ellis is set to spend four to six weeks on the sidelines following surgery to repair a foot injury.

Football manager Dan Richardson said Ellis's injury was similar to the problem he had pre-season but on the opposite foot, with the Tigers choosing to take a conservative approach with the prized youngster.

"It wasn't a specific injury, he developed some soreness post-game and upon further assessment, and based on what he experienced on the other foot, we decided it was best to get it sorted out now," Richardson said.

"He's certainly shown some good patches at AFL level this year but you've got to think long-term with young players."

Saturday, 2 May 2015
Corey Ellis makes his AFL debut for Richmond at the MCG with 13 disposals (3 kicks and 10 handballs), 2 marks, 2 tackles and a goal in a 9-point loss to Geelong.
Wednesday, 17 December 2014
Corey Ellis will under go foot surgery but the Tigers expect their first draft pick to resume training in January.

"In consultation with our medical team, we have decided that the best course of action is for Corey to have minor surgery on his foot," Richmond football manager Dan Richardson said.

"We were fully aware of Corey's condition when we drafted him, and that a procedure might be required at some stage. While he will not be rushed back into full training, we expect a full recovery early in 2015."

The Tigers boost their midfield depth with the NAB AFL Draft after picking up inside midfielder Corey Ellis with their No.12 pick as well as outside midfielder Connor Menadue, the versatile Nathan Drummond and small forward Daniel Butler, who in time will also play through the middle.

"The coach was really keen to add some midfield depth to enable some players to play some different roles, and we feel we've addressed that," Tigers recruiting manager Francis Jackson said.

"They're all a little bit different in their own right.

"We're delighted with the combination. We're generally really pleased with the outcome and look forward to these boys coming to Tiger land."

Thursday, 13 November 2014
Draft prospect Corey Ellis' season didn't end the way he hoped, on the sidelines for the Western Jets' finals appearance and the NAB AFL Draft Combine with a stress fracture in his foot.

It left him in a moon boot and will have clubs checking his medical assessment, but the Victorian midfielder did enough through the year to maintain his standing as one of the better prospects.

Ellis had some injuries through the year, too, being hampered at times in the under-18 championships with Vic Metro. But in eight games for the Jets he averaged 22 disposals and five clearances, highlighting his poise in close.
