Ebner, unfortunately, suffered the injury while converting a fake punt for a first down.
You can expect the Patriots to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Ebner, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2012. He’s currently in the final year of his two-year, $2.4 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $825,000 for the 2017 season before testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent next year.
In 2017, Ebner appeared in nine games and recorded eight tackles for the Patriots.
