“He does a lot for us on the field & off the field. But we’re just going to have to move on.” – Belichick on losing Mayo— New England Patriots (@Patriots) October 16, 2013

Les Carpenter of Yahoo! Sports provides a major update on Mayo's status:
New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo could miss the rest of the season after having surgery Tuesday to repair a torn pectoral muscle, Yahoo Sports has learned.
The injury, confirmed by two sources, is a blow to the Patriots, who pulled out a last-second victory over New Orleans on Sunday but may have lost four key players for significant time.
Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork was already lost for the season a couple of weeks ago, and before Mayo went down against the Saints, cornerback Aqib Talib, guard Dan Connolly and wide receiver Danny Amendola all endured injuries on Sunday, per WEEI.com's Mike Petraglia.
ESPN's Mike Reiss attempted to put into perspective the integral role Mayo serves on the Patriots defense:
Jerod Mayo leads the defensive huddle, plays every snap, and is a point person on communication within front-7. Enter Dont'a Hightower.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) October 13, 2013
The six-year veteran has recorded 55 combined tackles, 1.5 sacks, one pass deflection and one fumble recovery this season. Against the Saints, he had six tackles.
Mayo was named the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2008, has made two Pro Bowls and was a first-team All Pro in 2010.
