New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez Ruled Out For Sunday


The New England Patriots will be without tight end Aaron Hernandez for the fifth straight game as he continues to recover from an ankle injury suffered on September 16th. He is officially listed as questionable but all signs point to Hernandez missing the game.

Hernandez was expected to miss at least five games following the injury and if he makes progress during this week at practice he is on the right pace for his anticipated return.

With Hernandez at, the Patriots will turn to recently activated tight end Visanthe Schiancoe.
