Foxborough, MA (Sports Network) - New England Patriots tight end Aaron
Hernandez may miss his third straight game on Sunday with a sore ankle when
the Patriots host the Indianapolis Colts.
According to multiple reports, the third-year standout will miss his sixth
game of the season with a low ankle sprain.
Hernandez was limited in practice all week with the lingering injury he
suffered in Week 2, but the Patriots have deemed the fourth-round pick
questionable on their final injury report.
Wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle) and guard Dan Connolly (back) returned to
practice on Friday after missing the past two sessions.
Both players joined Hernandez as questionable, along with 13 other Patriots,
including tight end Rob Gronkowski (hip), safety Patrick Chung (shoulder) and
linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee).
Guard Logan Mankins (ankle/calf) did not practice all week and is officially
listed as doubtful.
