One of the best special team player in the NFL, and the best on the Patriots, Matthew Slater, has a broken bone his hand.
The injury bug just keeps on hitting New England early on.
Slater is a team captain, the special team’s leader, and his value on ST unit is irreplaceable, yet it just another bad news for the Patriots on the injury front.
Slater has been a Pro Bowler the past two seasons.
His availability for the Tampa game has been put into question.
