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
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.
