Tigh end Aaron Hernandez made his return to the practice field Thursday, albeit limited, for the first time since injuring his ankle Sept. 16th against the Arizona Cardinals. He'll still miss this Sunday's matchup against the Denver Broncos, but if all stays on track, he'll be ready in time for week 6 when the team visits the Seattle Seahawks. Whatever the timetable is for his return, it seems to be better than expected. He ran some warmup pass routes and also took part in opening drills, but still has "a hitch in his step" according to the Patriots' official site. Also returning to practice were Rob Gronkowski (hip/limited) and Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion/limited).
