Slater and the Patriots have agreed on a two-year contract extension, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Slater (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against Dallas.
Slater popped up on the injury report for Friday's practice session, but as evidenced by this news, it was nothing more than a precaution. Now that the 34-year-old is officially healthy, he's expected to be deployed in his usual depth receiver role while operating on special teams.

Slater (illness) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Titans.
Slater was a late addition to the injury report after coming down with an illness over the weekend. He doesn't have a large role on the offense so his illness shouldn't impact the team much, even if he is slightly limited during the game.

Slater likely fell ill at some point Saturday or early Sunday, as he wasn't included on New England's injury report throughout the week. The late addition isn't the most encouraging sign for his availability, but the Patriots will see how he progresses in the next few hours before determining his status for the 1 p.m. EST kickoff.

Although Slater's is generously labeled as a wide receiver, he's mainly used as a returner and special teams gunner.

Slater has signed a two-year deal to remain with the Patriots, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Slater was unable to practice this week after sustaining the hamstring injury in the Patriots' Week 10 win over the Broncos.
