Looks like we’ll be without Hernandez once again…
Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez is expected to sit out Sunday’s game vs. the Colts, I’m told. Been out since mid-October after re-injuring ankle— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 16, 2012
Remember all the talk about how Hernandez needed to prove he could stay healthy before getting a contract extension? Well he got the extension and he certainly hasn’t proven he can stay healthy.
It’s hard to believe he’s only played four games this year with 17 catches for 143-yards and two touchdowns. He’s quickly gone from having expectations of an unstoppable season to just hoping he’s healthy for the stretch run.
Hard to say if he’ll play against the Jets on Thanksgiving, but perhaps it’s best to shut him down then too, get him the break on the mini-bye and bring him back against the Dolphins.
