BOSTON (CBS) –  New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins has a sprained MCL and will sit out the team’s regular season finale on Sunday, according to a report.

The Boston Herald’s Ian Rapoport was first to report the injury, adding that Mankins will not need surgery for the injury and hopes to return for the playoffs.

Mankins left Saturday’s 27-24 win over the Dolphins in the first quarter and did not return. He had moved over to left tackle with Matt Light being a late scratch for the game. Donald Thomas played left guard for most of the game on Sunday, with rookies Nate Solder and Marcus Cannon filling in at the two tackle positions.

New England has a first-round bye in the playoffs, giving Mankins three weeks to rest his knee.
