Report: Mayo fined for hit against Bills

FOXBORO -- Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo has been informed by the NFL he will be fined for at least one of the several huge hits he laid on the Bills during Sunday's 34-3 rout of Buffalo at Ralph Wilson Stadium, according to the Boston Herald.


Mayo told the paper that the league told him he’s been fined for at least one hit in game but wasn’t sure which one was deemed too violent or unnecessary.


Players typically received the formal notice of a fine and the amount on the following Friday after the game in question and Mayo had not received his as of Thursday morning.

Welker: 'I'm here to play football'

FOXBORO -- Despite suffering a severe injury to his left knee in the 2009 season finale, Wes Welker says he has no intention of sitting out to avoid another similar situation this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium. 


"I say I'm here to play football and that's what I get paid to do, and I love playing," Welker said. "No matter what's at stake or what the deal is, I want to play. I know people are probably thinking different about that but I don't worry about other stuff. Whatever Coach Belichick decides for me, that's what I'm going to do. I'm always ready to play."


Welker injured the knee against the Houston Texans at midfield, on a grass field that was in questionable condition. He was unavailable for the playoff game against Baltimore, which the Patriots lost at home, 33-14. Welker had reconstructive surgery on his ACL and MCL shortly thereafter and came back to start this...
