Patriots receiver Matthew Slater has a broken wrist, adding to New England's injury woes for the 2013 season.

According to the Boston Herald, Slater will be out four to six weeks. Slater adds his name to a laundry list of Patriots players forced to miss time due to injury.

Slater won't be easy to replace either. Though he's not a contributor on offense, he's regarded as one of the coverage unit's best players.
