TE Hernandez unlikely to play
November, 17, 2012
Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against the Colts, ESPN.com AFC East reporter James Walker reports.
Hernandez continues to be bother by a severe ankle sprain he suffered in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. He returned briefly for two games but probably came back too soon.
New England leads the NFL in total offense and can afford to rest Hernandez and get him healthy for the stretch run. After putting up career numbers in 2011, Hernandez has just 17 catches for 143 yards and two touchdowns this season.
