Logan Mankins had reconstructive knee surgery in the offseason to repair a torn ACL, and finally returned to the playing field for some in-game action on Friday, August 24th. His explanation of how it went was very characteristic of a Patriot who has been coached by Belichick his entire career, he stated “I survived.” However, he did also mention that he had no concerns about himself or his knee, the only time he worried was when Tom Brady was on the receiving end of a few hard hits from the Buccaneers defense.

Mankins long term health is extremely important to the New England Patriots, he is one the leagues best guards and does an excellent job at keeping the defenders away from the Patriots prized quarterback, Tom Brady. Additionally, he is no slouch when it comes to run blocking, but that’s only important if the Patriots do decide to run the ball.
