Injury notes on Brandon Lloyd, Patrick Chung and Matthew Slater
Posted by Jeff Howe at 9:18 pm
Special teams captain Matthew Slater limped badly out of the locker room tonight, which wasnâ€™t a good sign for the valued player in the kicking game. Slater wasnâ€™t on the field during Leon Washingtonâ€™s 25-yard punt return that set up the Seahawksâ€™ game-winning drive. Hard to imagine the Patriots surrender their longest return of the season if Slater was on the field. Slater entered the game with a team-high five special teams tackles, and he had two of their three stops tonight.
Safety Patrick Chung left the game with a shoulder injury, but he wasnâ€™t wearing a sling when he left the stadium. Thatâ€™s a good sign in and of itself, but thereâ€™s no telling if there was any protection under his shirt.
Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd left late, but it didnâ€™t appear to be anything concerning. That will need to be monitored going forward. Lloyd had gotten dinged up a couple times earlier this season but returned.
Slater looks like he's out for the foreseeable future...
Yes, he played the final two plays after that injury

Let's see if Slater misses any time. My guess is that he won't.
The war of attrition, that is the NFL season continues, these injuries are concerning.. it seems as though a bunch of guys are fighthing through minor injuries that are hampering their execution..
how many weeks on the sideline is too long for slater before his roster spot goes elsewhere.
From what I remember from yesterday, it looked like Slater hurt himself celebrating his special teams tackle...:bricks:
... like 8-9? He's a crucial aspect to special teams. Not easily replaced.
... with the punter
Sorry to be that guy.
I'm quasi convinced that Brady was concussed on the play where one of the Shawks lineman hit him helmet to face. This occurred at the end of the 3rd quarter.
Brady's 4th quarter included a handful of bounced passes, an interception in the end zone and his second intentional grounding of the game.
I don't expect to hear anything about it - but he clearly was not himself, so he was either injured or this was one of those "hit Brady hard and he won't respond" type things that we hear some opposing defenses say in the media.
