Importance of Guard Logan Mankins

While Tampa Bay has yet to see a healthy Logan Mankins for a full game, he has already shown his benefit and leadership on the field. Left tackle Anthony Collins gushed about how Mankins have helped him out during games this season “I have never played with a guy like Logan,” Collins said earlier this week. “I had some great guards in Cincinnati but a guy like Logan, he’s telling me the game while the game is going on.

Rams vs. Buccaneers injuries: Doug Martin out; Logan Mankins plays; Shaun Hill could play

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will miss Doug Martin, but Logan Mankins returns. Meanwhile, Shaun Hill was not deactivated but could still sit out the game. Doug Martin will not play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today after suffering a knee injury against the Carolina Panthers. The Bucs are lucky to have Logan Mankins back, though. He had suffered a hyperextended knee against the Panthers. With Doug Martin out, the Buccaneers are likely to turn to Bobby Rainey to carry the load with Mike James as the lone backup. The Bucs have no other backs on the roster. At least Logan Mankins' return should...

Behind Enemy Lines: Revis, Brady and more with Patriots reporter Ben Volin

For the Vikings’ Week 2 matchup against the Patriots, we spoke to Ben Volin, Patriots beat writer for the Boston Globe, for this week’s edition of “Behind Enemy Lines.” Here are five questions we asked Volin about the Vikings home opener. What happened to the Patriots offensive line in Week 1? BV: They got pretty overwhelmed by the Dolphins defensive line, which is pretty good. That happened last year, too, actually. Part of the Logan Mankins trade was probably because what the Dolphins did to those guys last year, and we saw it again where the Patriots just couldn’t stop the...

Logan Mankins injury: Bucs guard likely to play, Doug Martin limited

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will get Logan Mankins back from injury, but Michael Johnson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins are almost certainly out, while Doug Martin may not play either. Logan Mankins participated fully on Friday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after being limited on the previous two days and suffering a hyperextended knee against the Carolina Panthers. Having Mankins back in the starting lineup should help bolster the offensive line a little, although that line struggled both with and without Mankins last Sunday. Doug Martin participated on a limited basis the past three days, and...

Lovie Smith says Doug Martin "leading the troops"; Logan Mankins back at practice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have Doug Martin and Logan Mankins in Sunday's game, but their participation is still in doubt. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered a slew of injuries in Sunday's game, but they're slowly getting better. The good news is that Logan Mankins and Doug Martin both participated on a limited basis in today's practice, including some contact work, which means they may be ready for Sunday's game. If they can participate fully in tomorrow's practice they should be good to go. While Doug Martin was reportedly benched for his pass protection issues, Lovie Smith flat-out...

Leftovers from Patriots' locker room

A few leftovers from the Patriots’ locker room on Wednesday as the team prepares to face the Minnesota Vikings: Tim Wright builds trust with Brady. The second-year tight end who came to New England in the Logan Mankins deal has brought an intense focus to get up to speed with the Patriots' offense. Wright feels more confident now that he has the playbook under control. “It’s a big help, just having a blueprint right in front of you whereas you don’t always have to look around, you can pinpoint things,” Wright said.

Weekly Tedy Bruschi chat recap

Every day after the New England Patriots play a game, Tedy Bruschi hosts a chat on ESPNBoston.com. Today's chat kicked off at 1 p.m., can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics: 1. The Patriots might have tried to do too much on defense with their fronts -- sometimes less is more. 2. Why Logan Mankins would have made a difference for the offensive line. 3. Why the idea of rotating personnel into the game at center isn't conducive to offensive linemen being at their best.

Borges: Mankins-size hole in O-line

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. ­— Apparently the pass rush of the Miami Dolphins had no idea the Patriots saved $6.25 million on the salary cap by unloading Logan Mankins two weeks ago in the best interest of, it appeared yesterday, the Miami Dolphins. What it did have an idea about though was how to trample Tom Brady, which it did so many times it took Deloitte & Touche to keep track of them all.
