    Patriots' Jerod Mayo: Has surgery on torn pectoral

    Mayo underwent a procedure Wednesday to repair a torn pectoral, Dan Roche of WBZ AM Boston reports. For the second time in a three-year span, Mayo required surgery on a pectoral, which is yet another in a line of injury concerns for the eight-year pro. No matter, the middle linebacker logged a full regular season slate for the first time since 2012, accruing 47 tackles (35 solo) and one sack. Assuming he recovers fully, he'll likely serve in a situational role again next season after logging 36 percent of the defensive snaps in 2015.

    Patriots' Jerod Mayo: Placed on IR

    Mayo (shoulder) will be placed on season-ending injured reserve,'s Ian Rapoport reports. Even though Mayo worked in a reduced role for much of the season, the Patriots may still suffer from his absence against a Denver team that wants to run the ball as much as possible. Jon Bostic, Darius Fleming and Dekoda Watson are the candidates to pick up early-down snaps alongside Jamie Collins (oblique) and Dont'a Hightower. Mayo's absence will become a much bigger issue if Collins is also unable to play.

    Patriots' Jerod Mayo: Sees reduced role in 2015

    Mayo was on the field for 36.2 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps this past season, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In 16 games, Mayo recorded modest IDP numbers (47 tackles and a sack) while seeing a reduced role behind fellow linebackers Jamie Collins and Dont'a Hightower. Previously, Mayo had been a key cog in the team's defense when healthy, but his contract probably needs to be tweaked in order for him to remain in the team's linebacker mix in 2016.

    Patriots' Jerod Mayo: Seeing limited role

    Mayo was on the field for 23 of the Patriots' 80 snaps on defense in Sunday's win over the Colts, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. He did not record a tackle in the contest and even with Dont'a Hightower sidelined, Mayo's role in the game was limited, with fellow LB Jonathan Freeny (47 snaps) actually absorbing more of Hightower's responsibilities in tandem with Jamie Collins (8- snaps). With just seven tackles in five games to date, Mayo is off the IDP radar these days.

    Patriots' Belchick says Mayo making progress every day coming off injury

"Jerod's made progress day by day; nobody works harder than Jerod does," coach Bill Belichick said Monday, per "We've asked him to do a little more, either by volume/the amount of work he does, or we've increased the intensity of it in the two-and-a-half weeks we've been in training camp, and I think he's handled all those well."

    Patriots restructure LB Jerod Mayo's contract

    The Patriots are working on restructuring linebacker Jerod Mayo's contract in order to keep the injured team captain in New England, per Fox Sports. The two-time Pro Bowl backer tore his patella tendon last October, ending his season in Week 6. Mayo had an injury guarantee of $4.5 million, meaning the Patriots would have to pay him in full if they released him before he was fully healthy.
