Patriots could have lost Stevan Ridley and Jerod Mayo for the year
The New England Patriots convincingly won in Buffalo on Sunday, but it was a very costly victory. Running back Stevan Ridley and linebacker Jerod Mayo both suffered knee injuries, and they could both be serious.

#Patriots LB Jerod Mayo is believed to have suffered a knee injury that is significant. More tests tomorrow to learn how significant.
These injuries are huge for the Patriots. They lost two of their key players and they might be forced to look for a trade to pick up quality players to fill the hole. The Patriots will be good at the running back spot, but they have zero depth at the linebacker position to fill in for their sixth defensive captain.
