The first week of the NFL season is in the books, but the Patriots don’t have much time to rest this week as they host the New York Jets on Thursday night. Unfortunately for the Patriots they could use a little extra time to let some guys recover.

Patriots special teams captain Matthew Slater joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Gresh and Zo on Wednesday to discuss the short week, the young players on the roster and dealing with distractions.

They started off discussing Danny Amendola, who left Sunday’s game in Buffalo in the first half with a groin injury but toughed it out to have a  monster second half. How much does it mean for a guy who has had his durability questioned in the off-season to have this kind of performance?

“There’s one thing you can’t question about Danny and that’s his toughness,” said Slater. “This guy has come in here from day one and worked his butt off, done everything the right way and he’s just been tough as nails.”

They discussed some of the young guys having trouble staying on their feet on Sunday. What does Slater think the problem was? Did the young guys get a bit overwhelmed?

They also talked about undrafted rookie Kenbrell Thompkins, and what Slater has seen out of him. They also hit on the other rookie receivers, Josh Boyce and Aaron Dobson.
