FOXBOROUGH — Matthew Slater has been ruled out, and Danny Amendola is doubtful to play against the Buccaneers on Sunday, according to the Patriots.

Slater (wrist) has missed practice all week. Amendola has practiced, but his participation has been limited due to a groin injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) is questionable, as are five other Patriots: running backs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Leon Washington (thigh), offensive linemen Will Svitek (knee) and Dan Connolly (finger), and defensive back Nate Ebner (ankle).
