With just over six minutes left in the second quarter of Sunday's game in Buffalo, the Patriots inside linebacker and captain made a tackle on Bills running back Boobie Dixon. During the tackle, Mayo's right knee appeared to buckle. Mayo went to the ground and couldn't get up. His teammates circled around Mayo and went to one knee in prayer. A cart came onto the field at midfield and drove Mayo off the field, with the Patriots team doctor trailing. The Patriots later announced Mayo would not return. Mayo missed half of the 2013 season with a torn pectoral muscle, which required offseason surgery. In other injury news, starting left guard Dan Connolly was forced to leave with a head injury and was replaced by Jordan Devey.
