Report: Patriots put Mayo on IR

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Patriots put linebacker Jerod Mayo on injured reserve (shoulder).  Mayo injured his shoulder during New England's AFC Divisional playoff victory over Kansas City Saturday in Foxboro. 

There's no word yet on whether injuries to Dont'a Hightower, Jamie Collins and Chandler Jones will keep them out of Sunday's AFC Championship Game in Denver against the Broncos.
