Aaron Hernandez had his first child on Tuesday, so what does this mean for his status for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills?According to NBC's website, it's a game time call.The Patriots had tight end Aaron Hernandez at practice for the second straight day on Thursday, but those looking for certainty about his status for Sunday’s game against the Bills will have to wait a little bit longer.“Game-time. That’s it,” Hernandez said, via Phil Perry of CSNNE.com.My view is, let him rest up. I mean, if he wants to play, and he's ready, by all means let him play. But he's just become a father, let him enjoy it for a week. It's not the most important game, and it's another week for him to rest up. Besides, it's not like the offense struggled without him against the S. Louis Rams?Let the man be a father for a week, let him get a tattoo to commemorate the event, and have him 100% for next weeks big game vs the Indianapolis Colts.Give me a follow on Twitter, @brendanannely
