Mankins Underwent Surgery For a Torn ACL

Guard Logan Mankins underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL, something he had to reportedly play with during the teams loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI.

Mankins originally suffered the injury in a win over the Dolphins on December 24th, and sat out the regular season finale, but played in the post-season.

The team hopes Mankins will be ready by training camp.

A first-round pick out of Fresno State in 2005, Mankins has started all 104 games he’s been active during a seven-year career that has included four trips to the Pro Bowl, including after each of the last three seasons.

New England made Mankins the highest-paid guard in the NFL last August, signing him to a six-year, $51 million contract that included a $20 million signing bonus and $30 million in guarantees.

Mankins’ $2.75 million in base salary in 2012 and $5.75 million base salary in 2013 are guaranteed for injury only.
