08/10/17WRMatthew SlaterHamstringQUESTIONABLESlater was held out of Monday's practice with a hamstring injury, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

The severity of Slater's injury isn't known. Slater is listed as a wide receiver on the depth chart, but he hasn't caught a regular-season pass since 2011 and instead earns his spot on the Patriots' roster due to his standout play on special teams.

08/10/17DLDeatrich WiseHeadQUESTIONABLEWise (concussion) is expected to be sidelined for about a week, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Wise has been competing for a backup role on the Pats' defensive line, so a quick return would be advantageous the rookie fourth-round pick's chances.

08/09/17RBMike GillisleeHamstringQUESTIONABLEGillislee continues to miss practice due to a hamstring issue, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Gillislee, who sat out the Patriots' preseason opener, thus looks unlikely to suit up for Saturday's game against the Texans. Once healthy, Gillislee will re-enter the Patriots' backfield mix, where he'll face competition from fellow offseason acquisition Rex Burkhead, as well as pass-catching aces James White and Dion Lewis. It's a deep and versatile positional group, but Gillislee appears best-equipped to absorb the the greatest share of the short-yardage duties dominated last year by LeGarrette Blount.

07/29/17DBDuron HarmonKneeQUESTIONABLEHarmon was unable to finish practice Saturday due to a knee injury, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

Harmon underwent ankle surgery during the offseason, which led to questions about his availability for the beginning of training camp. However, he now appears to be slowed down by a different issue. The severity of his knee problem is unknown at this time, and he should be considered day-to-day.
