Bill Belichick: 'Jerod Mayo can't be replaced by one player'

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is adamant that one player can not replace Jerod Mayo in his side's defense as the linebacker sustains a serious knee injury.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has revealed that it will take several players to make up for the loss of linebacker Jerod Mayo.

The 28-year-old sustained a knee injury in his side's win over the Buffalo Bills, which will rule him out for the rest of the campaign.

Belichick told reporters: "Well, it already happened yesterday. You have to get big contributions from other guys - some at the linebacker position, some at other positions as well - see how it all comes together.

"Keep our fingers crossed for him. See exactly what his situation is, but we have to be ready to move on without him.

"So we will have to put multiple groups, multiple players to do some things that he did. I don't think there's one player that's going to run this team and do all that Jerod did."

Mayo missed 10 games last season with a torn pectoral injury.
