Webster was signed to the Panthers' active roster Tuesday, Steve Reed of The Associated Press reports.
Webster was signed by Carolina after the team moved defensive end Ryan Delaire to injured reserve. Webster will serve as a reserve defensive lineman and shouldn't be expected to have much of any role in the team's regular season finale.
Webster remains out of practice with a lingering hamstring injury, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Webster pulled his hamstring nearly two weeks ago, so it's a bit concerning that he's still dealing with some lingering pain. He remains without a concrete timetable for a return and appears doubtful for the team's preseason matchup with the Titans on Saturday. Webster is a projected depth option at defensive end for the upcoming season and will need to get back to full strength if he wants to avoid falling any lower on the depth chart.
Webster joined Wes Horton (wrist) as one of the two Panthers' defensive ends to get hurt on Friday. Though the team hasn't given Webster a timetable to return, a pulled hamstring can take weeks to fully recover from. While Webster is out, look for Rakim Cox to pick up some extra reps in practice.
