Pats TE Hernandez leaves game with ankle injury

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s return to

Sunday’s game is questionable after he suffered an ankle

injury.

Hernandez was hurt with 6:38 left in the first quarter against

the Arizona Cardinals while trying to block for Julian Edelman, who

had just caught a 6-yard pass from Tom Brady. Hernandez stayed on

the ground for several minutes and appeared to be favoring his

right leg as he was helped to the sideline.

Hernandez had six catches in the Patriots season-opening 34-13

win over the Tennessee Titans but none on Sunday. He is part of the

NFL’s best tight end tandem with Rob Gronkowski.
