Aaron Hernandez: Latest Update on Injured Patriots Tight End

Anything regarding the New England Patriots is going to be confusing and convoluted. That's the Bill Belichick way. So why would the Aaron Hernandez situation be any less cryptic?

Hernandez has practiced the last two days, but that isn't an indicator of anything. Like I said, you never know what the Pats are going to do with semi-hobbled players. For instance, he participated in every practice last week. Come game time, he was inactive.

However, it should be noted that Hernandez has apparently looked healthy while on the practice field.

 

 

That's better than nothing, right? I sure hope so.

There's just no way to predict what's going to happen. So what are you, the Aaron Hernandez owner, supposed to do?

 

Stay Vigilant

Twitter must become your best friend. You're not going to know if he is playing until close to game time because Belichick would never let such secret information out early.

Additionally, holding a vigil might not be a bad idea either.

 

Hold Onto That Second Tight End

I know you want to drop that second tight end to grab that looks-enticing-but-really-isn't waiver wire player.

Don't do it. Not now, not later.

As talented as Hernandez is, he's just as injury-prone. Dropping that semi-talented backup could become the final nail in your fantasy coffin.

Don't do it.
