The former Leeds and Wests Tigers second rower was forced to sweat for 48 hours after being put on report for a high tackle on full-back Cyril Stacul during last Saturday's 44-6 win over France at Craven Park.
But he was told on Monday that he would not be facing any further action and he is desperate to win his 21st England cap against the French at the Salford City Stadium.
"I've not played that many games this year," said Ellis, who was also in the side that beat Wales in England's opening international.
"I'll take any opportunity to play for England, it's the biggest honour you can get.
"I've really enjoyed the series so far. I hadn't played for six or seven weeks with Wests not making the play-offs and I've actually not played many games because of the foot injury that I had.
"It's been great to be back representing England and playing alongside some of the boys I've not seen for a while."
Ellis, who will take up a three-year contract with Hull next month, has been especially delighted to catch up with centre Kallum Watkins, who was coming through the juniors at Headingley during his last season with Leeds four years ago.
Ellis, 31, has been playing on the same side of the field as the 21-year-old Watkins and put him over for two of his three tries in the win at Hull.
"It's great to be playing with Kallum," he said. "I was at Leeds when he was just coming through.
"I trained with him for a season in 2008 but never had a chance to play with him. I could see he was a talented player even then.
"I heard great things about him since and he's certainly developed as a player. He's such a nice kid as well.
"He's a big threat playing against anyone. Sometimes it's just a case of catching the ball, giving it to him and see what he can do and he can certainly do the stuff."
The right-sided pair will be aiming to wreak more havoc on France on Sunday when Ellis says England will be aiming to improve on their performance in Hull.
"Defensively I thought we showed great attitude and demonstrated that we were prepared to work hard for each other," he said.
"Our attack was probably a bit off in terms of errors and penalties, which I don't think we're going to get away with when it comes to playing against some of the bigger teams.
"I think France will have learned a lot from that game. They'll be wanting to improve, as well as us, so it's set for another big game.
"In a way it's probably a good thing that we're playing France back to back because it gives us a big focus on areas of the game we need to work on."
Ellis will be available to face the Exiles next summer following his return to Super League but Sunday's game will be England's last full international before they begin in earnest their preparations for the World Cup and he says the importance of the match cannot be over-stated.
"We need to be able to walk off the field after 80 minutes with smiles on our faces knowing that we've taken a huge step forward and that we've made the most of every minute we've spent together," he said.
"It's a big 80 minutes for us in terms of where we're going."
