To hear the interview, go to the OM&F audio on demand page. Mayo, who has suffered major injuries that have cut short his last two seasons, played just 11 snaps in this past Sunday's win over the Bills. He said he doesn't know what to expect going forward, but he'll be ready to contribute. "Honestly, I'm just doing whatever the coaches need me to do," he said. "Whether it's just to help out the guys on the field or go in on different personnel groups. Whatever it is, when my number's called I'll be ready to go." The Jaguars come in at 1-1, following a win over the Dolphins, but there aren't many who are giving this team a chance Sunday in Foxboro. "If you just look at the personnel, they have a pretty good team, honestly," Mayo said. "They have weapons at the tight end spot, a good running back in [T.J.] Yeldon. As a matter of fact, they have a group of good running backs. [Toby] Gerhart's probably going to play, he's a big strong running back. A quarterback [Blake Bortles] that can move, he's very mobile, can make throws not he run. "Forget the record and forget all that. Jacksonville has a solid team. We have to go out there and put four quarters together." In addition to completing 40-of-73 passes for 456 yards and three touchdowns (with two interceptions), Bortles comes in with six rushes for 53 yards -- an average of 8.8 yards per attempt. "He'll take off on you any time he has the opportunity," Mayo said. "It's going to take all the guys doing their job and bottling him up." For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.
