New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez didn’t start
yesterday’s game against the Buffalo Bills due to an ankle injury, and the team
lost offensive linemen Logan Mankins and Dan Connolly to injuries during the
Mankins exited the game after having his ankle rolled up on
twice in the third quarter. The offensive lineman underwent X-rays and was seen
in a walking boot following the game. Mankins has already missed three games
this season due to a myriad of injuries.
Connolly was sidelined in the second quarter after
sustaining a back injury. Donald Thomas replaced Connolly while Nick McDonald
Hernandez was once again ruled out due to an ankle injury.
The ankle has hampered the dynamic tight end for much of the season and also held
him out of the team’s last game against the St. Louis Rams in London.
