Patriots' Malcolm Butler: Recovering from sprained knee
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler missed the Pro Bowl due to a sprained knee, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. "There was a play on third down [in the AFC championship game] when I made a tackle or something like that and bent my knee back," Butler said Friday. "It swelled up pretty bad. I didn't feel it during the game because of all the adrenaline pumping. When we got back, it swelled up pretty bad, and the team just decided it was a good thing to sit me out."

Butler became instantly famous with his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in last year's Super Bowl, and the loss of Darrelle Revis in free agency elevated him to the Patriots' No. 1 cornerback. The pseudo promotion worked wonders, as Butler notched 67 tackles (56 solo), 15 passes defended, and two interceptions while regularly drawing the opponent's top wide receiver over the course of his second campaign. While his recovery effort won't include surgery, rest and regular icing sessions have been his regimen to date.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: No offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rob Gronkowski won't need offseason surgery on his knee or back, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Gronkowski struggled to stay healthy for a fourth consecutive year, as he missed one game in 2015 due to a minor knee strain. Additionally, a back issue afflicted him in both playoff tilts, but the touchdown machine still struck three total times against the Chiefs and Broncos. After a third 1,000-yard and fifth double-digit touchdown campaign in six professional seasons, he'll enter draft season as the clear-cut No. 1 tight end.

Patriots' Jerod Mayo: Has surgery on torn pectoral
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jerod 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' LeGarrette Blount: Avoided hip surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeGarrette Blount didn't need surgery on the hip injury that ended his 2015 campaign, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

The New England Patriots ' backfield endured hits during the season, as Dion Lewis (knee) preceded Blount's placement on injured reserve on Dec. 16. Despite missing the final three games of the regular season, Blount was far and away the team's leading rusher, totaling 165 carries for 703 yards (4.3 YPC) and six touchdowns. The Patriots must make a call on the unrestricted free agent in the coming months, but if he sticks around, he'll likely serve as the No. 1 back until Lewis has recovered from a torn ACL, barring other additions to the roster.

Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Logs 16 snaps on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bolden was on the field for 16 of the Patriots' 83 offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-18 loss to the Broncos in the AFC title game, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Bolden carried five times for 12 yards and caught two passes for 29 yards.

The 25-year-old Bolden finished up the 2015 regular season with 63 carries for 207 yards to go along with 19 catches for 180 yards and two TDs in 15 games. Bolden remains under contract with the Patriots in 2016, which puts him on track to reprise his role with the team next season as a versatile depth back that's also a valuable special teams contributor.
