Ebner suffered what is believed to be a season-ending knee injury in Sunday's win over the Dolphins and will have an MRI to confirm Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ebner suffered the injury on a fake punt attempt Sunday and was unable to return for the game. It now looks like the defensive back won't be able to return for the rest of the season as well. Ebner was used primarily on special teams this season.

Ebner right knee buckled on a fake punt attempt and he won't return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

It was an ugly sight for Ebner, and his quick removal from the rest of the game isn't a good sign. The sixth-year pro only plays on special teams, though, so the best case scenario is that New England is just being cautious to not rush him back onto the field.

EDGE Analysis

Ebner (concussion) is questionable to play in Sunday's Super Bowl against the Falcons.

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.
