Matthew Slater is latest injured Patriots player

Slater has a broken bone in his hand that has put his availability for Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay into question, a league source said.

A Pro Bowler in each of the past two seasons (when he did not miss a game), Slater is an integral part of the Patriots’ special teams units.

Losing him would be another blow to a team that is already without receiver Danny Amendola and tight end Rob Gronkowski.
