CSNNE.com's Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran joins SNC to discuss Jerod Mayo's injury.
Yeah. Think set the Patriots get the bit on Sunday but they lose their defensive captain for now at least Jerod Mayo went down in the second quarter you appeared to -- it awkwardly on that left and eat hobbled read it. Before going down that He was helped off the field and party. Locker room and going up higher peak at a time. Current at the Renaissance Patriot place in time you reported that it was an NCL's brain on left side for Jerod male. Not uncommon injury one we've seen Aaron Hernandez -- dealing with it right now what do you expect to see now that we know what it is. Well I think with these NC Els and as I wrote yesterday it's not a season and which is big but generally they're taking in the span of about six weeks. -- came back from one in three weeks in 2009. Really wasn't the same. Player for awhile after that so that -- -- rangers' most likely which can expect we will have them. Through the five -- Pittsburgh. The mid November before. Hate to say that it's good news has -- courses. It happened but could feel a lot worse than any time hearing -- Stepped in on Sunday when He went down they might also need to look to Dane Fletcher second year inside linebacker -- some of these guys that could fill the void. We talked to Dayne today He even spent some time at fullback and and is one of the bodies that do little bit every waiting. As exactly but He said that He would be ready to go. If they need him. When the dollars Oklahoma defense is kind of my shoulders and so you know. With whatever is going on defense right now. In everybody's got help as much as possible including myself so you know whatever these people on my shoulders. -- He has it's. The Belichick told today that he's seen a big jump from being Pletcher and particularly when it comes and has played this season but we know that Gary Guyton also step up poppy -- is breaking down Tom. When they needed -- -- Well what's interesting is Jerod Mayo was basically rebound climb back. Gary Guyton despite the proven in the first couple years the week that you were dispute linebacker whose best in coverage and even this year and we. He hasn't been. We appreciate it I think it's my fault that ain't what you saw on the pre season have the Green -- -- -- the -- we've communicated with. I have tapestry from the sidelines throughout the ones calling the defense is that it -- critical because defense. Well we get into what we've done here has really lacked in it's important for them to have a good it's a smart. People -- -- -- be smarter on that side of the ball and Jerod Mayo. Yet He could ask yourself would even make a difference it would have a cabinet there because they're giving up 530 yards a game they seemed to not be able to tackle in with him out there but. Nonetheless He makes a big difference.
