FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked on Tuesday about his injured players and how much they're involved in the off-field preparation process, especially during the team's upcoming bye week.

Belichick responded by saying the team's top priority is getting all injured players rehabilitated and back on the field. In the process, he gave an update on injured linebacker Jerod Mayo, who's making his way back from a knee injury after missing the last two games, and having limited participation in last Friday's practice.

"At the point and time where he is really able to participate in practicing, which we're certainly getting close to that, then he'll have less rehabilitation and more practice," said Belichick.
