Logan Mankins Undwerwent ACL Surgery Following Patriots Super Bowl Loss

Logan Mankins underwent surgery on a torn ACL following the New England Patriots' Super Bowl loss in February, according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com. The starting Pats left guard apparently played with the injury without even realizing it. Now he hopes to be ready for training camp in late July.

The news makes sense in context with the Pats signing Robert Gallery away from Seattle earlier Monday. It was unclear initially why New England needed more bodies at what had been considered a position of strength. Though Gallery has obviously had his trials in the NFL, he should prove valuable as a versatile backup, especially if Mankins misses any part of the regular season.

Makins reportedly injured his knee on Dec. 24 in a 27-24 win over the Miami Dolphins. He missed just one game, the regular season finale, before starting throughout the playoffs and the Super Bowl. In true Bill Belichick fashion, we are only hearing of this over a month after the fact.
