FOXBOROUGH -- For the second straight day, Nate Ebner was missing from Patriots practice.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The special-teamer was present Monday when the team practiced following their bye week, but did not practice Wednesday due to back and ankle injuries and was again missing Thursday.

Following the bye, the injury report is much smaller than usual with only four players in total being listed Wednesday.

If Ebner does miss the game Sunday, the team will need to find someone to play a bunch of special teams, as he is a member of all four units.

New England will practice Friday before departing for Philadelphia Saturday.
