Mankins was questionable with ankle and calf injuries.
After practicing in a limited capacity all week, Mankins and standout rookie right defensive end Chandler Jones are both listed as questionable for Monday night's much-hyped matchup against the first-place Houston Texans (11-1), a game with major playoff ramifications for both teams.|||||||
"Just got out there a little bit this week and tried to move around. We'll see where it goes from today," said Mankins, who injured his ankle in the second half of New England's victory over Buffalo on Nov. 11 and has missed the last three games. "We were just trying to do as much as we can. I can't do everything yet, so I guess we might find out Monday."

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft wanted to keep Logan Mankins with the team for a long time. It looks as if he got his wish. The three-time Pro Bowl guard who missed the first seven games last season because of a 4 1-2-month contract holdout has agreed to a six-year deal with the team, according to ESPN.|||||||
Neither the Patriots nor Mankins' agent, Frank Bauer, responded to requests for comment. Earlier Wednesday, Kraft said Mankins, entering his seventh season, probably would be signed soon, hopefully to be a Patriot for the rest of his career. Mankins played the last nine regular-season games and one playoff game last season and was chosen for the Pro Bowl. The Patriots made him their franchise player in February.
