Found November 09, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was among 14 players, including tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receivers Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd, that were listed as limited at practice Thursday. While the others are expected to play, Hernandez told reporters, including Phil Perry of CSNNE.com, that he is likely to once again be a game-time decision for this weekend’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Hernandez was limited in practice on Wednesday and was back to work with his teammates in the Patriots practice bubble on Thursday. Asked if he would be ready for Sunday's game against the Bills, he was non-committal.  "Game-time," he said, implying that he would be a game-time decision. "That's it." Hernandez continues to recover from an ankle injury that kept him out of the Patriots last game against the St. Louis Rams. Linebackers Dont’a Hightower and Brandon Spikes and safety Patrick Chung were also limited yesterday, while running back Brandon Bolden, defensive lineman Trevor Scott and linebacker Tracy White all missed practice.
