  • Patriots place 2-time Pro Bowl LB Mayo on IR

    Patriots placed WLB Jerod Mayo (pectoral) on injured reserve, ending his season.
    Mayo needed surgery to repair the right pectoral muscle he tore against the Saints in Week 6. It's another massive blow to a defense that has already lost captain and Vince Wilfork (Achilles') for the season. Second-round rookie Jamie Collins will step in at weak-side linebacker, but he's going to struggle to replace a guy that has led the Patriots in tackles for five straight years, been to two Pro Bowls and calls the defensive plays. Mayo should be back in 2014 at a reasonable $3.25 million base salary.
