ESPN reported that linebacker Jerod Mayo and star running back Stevan Ridley are both out for the season. However coach Bill Bellichick told Boston radio WEEI:
“Unfortunately I don’t think it looks too good, but we’ll see what we get back [from tests]. We’ll wait until we get more specific information, but I don’t think it’s minor, let’s put it that way.”
Ridley has 340 yards this season and 2 touchdowns. Mayo has 53 tackles and one sack with them progressing defense.
