Belichick: Mayo injury not a season-ender

September 15, 2009 - 2:10 pm

On a conference call Tuesday afternoon, Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked if the injury that linebacker Jerod Mayo suffered in the first half of Monday'€™s win over the Bills could be classified as a season-ending injury. '€œI don'€™t think that'€™s what it is,'€ responded the coach, who added that New England would have an update on Mayo'€™s condition tomorrow when the first practice report of the week was released. The second-year linebacker was injured late in the first quarter on a 16-yard run by Buffalo running back Fred Jackson. After spending a few moments on the sidelines '€“ where it appeared the medical staff was examining his right knee '€“ he was helped to the locker room. He did not return, and he wasn'€™t in the locker room when the media was allowed in after the game. In his place, Gary Guyton and Adalius Thomas spent time at middle linebacker. We'll have the complete transcript of the Q&A between Belichick and the media up later this evening.
