The New England Patriots were able to improve to 3-2 on the season following Sunday’s victory over the Denver Broncos despite the absence of two key contributors on offense; tight end Aaron Hernandez and wide receiver Julian Edelman. The Patriots are expected to have at least one of these players back for their Week 6 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Hernandez was a game-time decision Sunday, and the Patriots ultimately decided to keep him sidelined for another week. Still, this seems to improve his chances of returning against the Seahawks. He entered the week listed as questionable, but it appears he could see the field for the first time in nearly a month. Edelman’s status is more uncertain, as the wide receiver continues to try and return from a hand injury that’s kept him out since Week 3. It’s not clear if he’s dealing with a fracture in his injured hand, which could sideline him for an extensive period of time. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt
