FOXBORO -- Injured Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo had limited participation in Wednesday's and Thursday's practice at Gillette Stadium. Coach Bill Belichick said on Friday that he'll likely make a decision on Mayo's availability after seeing how he progresses in the next few days.
"Well, he's been limited in practice, so he's done some things, and other things he hasn't done," said Belichick prior to Friday's practice at Gillette Stadium. "He's trying to do a little bit more each day. We'll see how that goes today. And then, we'll make a decision on this weekend, based on the whole body of work.
"Again, if the player works, and continues to get better, then that's good. If the player works, and kind of levels off of is held back a little bit, then that's probably an indication that he probably needs a little bit more time.
"Stringing days together is important, too, in the overall evaluation of an injury, or a player's readiness, I should say."
