Matthew Slater is one of the best special teams players in the NFL, but he offers nothing as an offensive weapon.

Patriots wide receiver Matthew Slater was removed the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday, reports ESPN.com. While Slater was able to practice Monday, he has not been cleared for full-contact practice and was wearing a red non-contact jersey. "Not fun," he said after practice. "Red means stop. It's not something that I'm used to doing, but the medical staff knows what's best for me, so you just have to listen to the doctor's orders and take it one day at a time."
