The activations of Ebner and Webster leave just four players remaining on either the PUP or non-football injury lists for New England. Wide receivers Julian Edelman (thumb/NFI), Demaryius Thomas (Achilles/PUP) and Cameron Meredith (knee/PUP), and tackle Yodny Cajuste (quad/NFI) remain sidelined for the time being.
Ebner is entering his eighth season with the Patriots. He has been a reliable reserve and constant presence on special teams units throughout his tenure in New England. He’s played in 97 career games without making a start and has racked up 87 tackles.
Webster was a seventh-round draft pick this spring out of Mississippi. He appeared in 37 career games for Ole Miss with 92 tackles, three interceptions and 5.5 sacks.
