Jerod Mayo Has Sprained MCL

Patriots second year linebacker Jerod Mayo has a sprained MCL.

One source said Mayo is expected to be out 6-8 weeks with the Grade 3 MCL sprain, but the other source said the timetable is "not that bad’’ and the 2008 Defensive Rookie of the Year could return sooner.

 

He'll definitely miss Sunday's game, though. Tough break for the Pats. Their game plan is likely to key on stopping the run and forcing Mark Sanchez to win the game. They lose one of the game's emerging stars at a position they don't have a large amount of depth.

I'm not going to say this is good news for the Jets. I'd rather face an opponent at full strength. It takes some of the fun out of winning and adds extra sting to the loss if they're shorthanded. With that said, life just got a whole lot easier on the offensive line and Tony Richardson. Mayo is a stud.
