Ankle sprain to keep Hernandez out-- Fri Nov 16 6:00 pm --
Pats' TE won't face Colts this Sunday
The New England Patriots will have to play at least another week with standout tight end Aaron Hernandez. According to a source briefed on the situation, Hernandez will not play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts because of a lingering ankle injury, reports NFL.com and NFL Network's Albert Breer. Hernandez suffered a low ankle sprain in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals and was on the sideline until the Patriots' Week 6 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He played in two games, but did not travel to London to play against the St. Louis Rams. He has not played since the Patriots' victory over the New York Jets on Oct. 21. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:Ankle injuries have a tendency to linger. Hernandez has been respectable when he has played this year, but has been limited to just four games. The Oakland Raiders' Brandon Myers and Indianapolis Colts' Dwayne Allen project to be strong plays this week, and are likely to be available in your league if you're in need of a tight end.
