NASHVILLE - Logan Mankins was back on the field for the Patriots season opener, less than seven months after having reconstructive surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, an injuiry he acknowledged suffering sometime last season. ESPN reported Sunday that Mankins tore the ACL in the opener at Miami, and that he played the entire season with the tear.

“Yeah. I don’t want to get into last season too much tonight,” Mankins said, when asked about the report. “I’m kind of set on celebrating this victory with the team. Maybe next week.”

Mankins was asked if he kept the injury private, or if the team was aware.

“No one knew,” Mankins said, before leaving the postgame locker room.
