Patriots G Logan Mankins Will Start Camp On The PUP List

The New England Patriots will start training camp without incumbent left guard Logan Mankins. The four-time Pro Bowler will start camp on the physically unable to perform list, as expected. A Wednesday report from the Boston Herald left his status for the start of the regular season up in the air.

New England has one of the deeper groups of offensive linemen in the NFL. The Herald report notes that center Dan Connolly could slide over and fill the left guard spot without Mankins in action. Connolly and Dan Koppen are vying for the starting center job in camp this season.

The Patriots also brought in free agent Robert Gallery this spring. Gallery has starting experience on the inside as well.

Mankins is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL, an injury he played through during the Super Bowl.

Logan Mankins Injury: Patriots Guard Could Start Season On PUP List

The New England Patriots could be forced to start their season without guard Logan Mankins. The Pro Bowl guard had surgery to repair a torn ACL, an injury he played with during the Super Bowl this year, which could keep him out of action into November, says James Walker of ESPN. He would start the season on the PUP list under those circumstances.

There had been some belief that Makins could be ready to go in time for training camp. For their part, the Patriots are keeping mum on the entire situation, as is tradition for head coach Bill Belichick.

New England did sign veteran guard Robert Gallery during the offseason. He could be a suitable fill-in while Mankins is on the shelf. Gallery, 31, started last season in Seattle, but missed four games early in the season with a knee injury.

Logan Mankins Expected To Be Ready For Training Camp, According To Report

It was reported on Monday that New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins underwent surgery following Super Bowl XLVI in order to repair a torn ACL.

According to the Rap Sheet at BostonHerald.com Sports, the injury and subsequent surgery should not require Mankins to miss substantial time, if any at all. The guard apparently unknowingly had his ACL partially torn during the Super Bowl, but he was able to play anyway. Although there is no timetable for his return, the Rap Sheet was told that he will definitely be ready for Patriots training camp in late July.

This is certainly great news for the Patriots, as they'll be retaining a significant contributor to their offensive line. Mankins was the recipient of New England's 2011 franchise tag before signing a six-year deal last August.
