Slater (undisclosed) isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Although Slater's is generously labeled as a wide receiver, he's mainly used as a returner and special teams gunner. The 32-year-old is entering his 11th season with the Patriots, but he hasn't hauled in a pass since the 2011 season. He's off the PUP list now, though, so expect him to return to action soon.

While officially listed as a wideout by the Patriots, Slater has not hauled in a regular-season pass since 2011. He finished last year with one carry for five yards and zero catches in 13 games. The 2008 fifth-rounder, who turns 32 in September, maintains his spot on the team with his continuing strong special teams play and respected leadership presence.
Slater isn't on the fantasy radar, but his special teams play and the leadership he brings to the Patriots keeps his roster spot with the team fairly secure heading into the 2015 campaign.

Officially a depth wideout, Slater will continue to earn most of his keep with the Patriots as a key special-teamer. His prowess in that area has earned him two trips to the Pro Bowl.

A depth receiver who has stuck around this long thanks to his special team's play.
A depth wideout, who earns most of his keep in the return game.
Will need to flash his special teams skills in training camp to stick withe Patriots as a returner/depth wideout.
Slater, who the Patriots traded up to draft, should stick with the team since his skills as a returner should help the likes of Ellis Hobbs and Wes Welker focus more on their starting assignments, rather than special teams.
