Slater finished the 2016 regular season with one carry for five yards and zero catches in 13 games. While officially listed as a wideout by the Patriots, Slater has not caught a regular season pass since 2011. The 2008 fifth-rounder -- who remains under contract with New England in 2017 -- maintains his spot on the team with his continuing strong special teams play and leadership presence.
Slater (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Slater was unable to play against the Jets last week, but will be able to return for the regular season finale, and he figures to be the Patriots' primary kick returner in Week 17.

Slater (foot) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Jets. Slater sustained a foot injury last Sunday against the Niners and was unable to join his team at practice this week. His next chance to play will come in Week 13 versus the Rams.
