Aaron Hernandez has been battling an ankle injury for most of the season, and it looks like it’s going to cost him another game this weekend.
NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports via Twitter that Patriots tight end is not expected to play this Sunday when New England welcomes the Indianapolis Colts to Gillette Stadium.
Hernandez hasn’t played since Oct. 21 in the second week of his return from a sprained ankle which he suffered in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Hernandez was listed as having limited participation in practice on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
The good news for the Patriots, though, may be that wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle) and offensive lineman Dan Connolly (back) returned to practice Friday after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Guard Logan Mankins did not participate Friday, and he’s missed the entire week of practice with an ailing ankle and calf.

PFFPerhaps the most common question we receive here at PFF is: “why is Player X rated so low?”These questions arise especially when a player’s reputation does not match up with his performance level as we’ve graded it and New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is the latest of the big names to be pulling in a poor grade this season.So why is Wilfork rated as...

It seems impossible, but for the sake of fun, let's not rule it out. Would you want Rex Ryan to come to New England to coach the much maligned Patriots defense? Would Rex want to do that? Would Belichick? These are the questions we at PatriotsLife had some varying opinions on. Here's a recap of our e-mail debate. Be sure to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section...
