BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo has been the talk in the locker room after his two-sack effort against the Buccaneers.

The fourth-year defender got after the passer and he spoke about the defense on Tuesday.

On getting pressure on the quarterback against Tampa Bay: “We did a good job of executing the game plan that Coach [Bill] Belichick has, [but] it changes every week. I’m very excited about the way we’ve started off.”

On the benefits of a disruptive defensive line: “Those guys, they’ve played excellent during the whole training camp. It’s very important for all of the linebackers for those guys to eat up a lot of those blockers and allow us to roam around.”

On the importance of getting Albert Haynesworth back on the field: “He’s a great player and I’m sure when he’s healthy he’ll get out there and make some plays for us…. He’s working hard to get back out there with the guys, and I’m sure he’s in his playbook, doing what he needs to do to be prepared to play when he comes back.”

Haynesworth returned to practice, in full pads, Tuesday for the first time since August 4. There is a chance he could see his first preseason action on Saturday against the Detroit Lions.

Quarterback Tom Brady takes the podium this afternoon, and the Patriots will hit the practice field again as they get ready for preseason game number-three.
