Mankins hurts ankle; return questionable
By Field Yates
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots starting left guard Logan Mankins, one of the team's four Pro Bowl selections, left Sunday's game against the Bills with an ankle injury and is questionable to return.
Mankins appeared to suffer the injury on a 36-yard touchdown run by LeGarrette Blount, limping off the field with assistance from the team's training staff.
He was taken to the locker room for further evaluation.
The Patriots have turned to rookie Josh Kline in his place. Kline was used at left guard last week with Mankins filling in for Nate Solder at left tackle.
