Webster, a nine-year veteran, played only four games for the Giants this season due a variety of lingering injuries. In addition to the ankle injury that landed him on IR, Webster also dealt with a groin issue that kept him out for several weeks earlier this year.
In total, Webster made eight tackles and defended one pass in what will likely be the final season of his Giants career.
Taking Webster's place on the 53-man roster is wide receiver Julian Talley, who has been signed from their practice squad in what would appear to be a move of preparation.
In Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, fellow UMass product, Victor Cruz, suffered both a concussion and a knee sprain, and appears unlikely for Big Blue's Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions.
Rounding out their roster moves, the Giants also signed running back Kendall Gaskins to their practice squad, taking the place of the aforementioned Talley.
