Aaron Hernandez, Logan Mankins don’t practice for Patriots


Before practice on Thursday, Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez said that he was feeling good after his return to action in Week Six.

Perhaps part of the reason he was feeling good was that he knew he wouldn’t have to go through a tiring practice on Thursday. Hernandez did not participate in the Patriots workout after taking part in a limited practice on Wednesday. That doesn’t mean he’s had any setback with his ankle, though. Hernandez didn’t practice last Friday before playing against the Seahawks, which indicates the team will be easing him back to a full workload, and there’s no sign that his chances of playing against the Jets have taken a hit today.

Guard Logan Mankins appears to be on the same protocol. Mankins, who has been dealing with a hip injury for the last few weeks, skipped Thursday’s practice after being limited on Wednesday. He has had varied practice participation in recent weeks, but hasn’t missed a game yet this year.

Safety Steve Gregory, running back Brandon Bolden and linebacker Tracy White also missed practice for New England. Defensive lineman Ron Brace was the only new addition to the injury report. He was limited along with eight other Patriots, including tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Wes Welker.

    Who else but Belechik plays these injury reports like he does?

    How is a player not practicing, playing with the injury report? It is Thursday,many players are banged up.

    But then again,if Belichick didn’t list a player who had issues as questionable on Thursday and he didn’t play on Sunday the Haters would hang BB from the gallows for the player not being on the report.

    Can’t have it both ways !

    Unfortunately for the Jets both Mankins and Hernandez will play on Sunday.

    Is there a defensive tackle in the league that gets hurts more often with as few actual game snaps as Ron Brace?

    With all these injuries and Tebow at RB the Pats are certainly doomed…..

    Mankins missed the Bills game-not that they needed him for it.

    The line stepped it up the last time Mankins was out…can they do it again?

    Hernandez needs to get a face tattoo so he can look even more like the inmate he portrays in his TD dance!
