Ebner (concussion) is expected to play in Sunday's Super Bowl against the Falcons, Ryan Hannable of WEEI reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots will likely have their special teams ace available Sunday despite the fact that Ebner wore a non-contact jersey during Thursday's practice. Ebner was a second-team All-Pro selection as a specialist while teammate Matthew Slater took home first-team honors. The former rugby star racked up 19 tackles and forced a fumble during the regular season and will help edify New England's special teams units Sunday.

ESPN Boston gives second-year S Nate Ebner a 65 percent chance of keeping his roster spot.

Ebner played just 36 snaps as a sixth-round rookie, while the Pats loaded up on defensive backs in April's draft. Ebner showed well as a special teamer last season, but will have to prove he's a core part of New England's third unit to keep his roster spot.

Patriots signed sixth-round S Nate Ebner made his camp debut Friday.

Ebner was sidelined by an undisclosed injury after passing his initial camp physical. The missed time doesn't bode well for a player on the roster bubble, but Ebner should be given every opportunity to shine on special teams in the preseason.
