The Patriots will be without 25-year old LB Jerod Mayo for the next 4-6 weeks due to a left MCL sprain. Mayo has played in 4 games for the Patriots so far this year and he has 24 tackles, 2 tackles for a loss and 1 forced fumble. 25-year old Gary Guyton will replace Mayo in the starting lineup. Guyton has played in 3 games for the Patriots so far this year and he has 10 tackles and 1 tackle for a loss. Mayo is one of he best players on the Patriots’ defense, so expect a dropoff without him…..if that’s even possible due to the way they are playing right now.
