The Week Six availability of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who is listed as questionable with an ankle injury, has been an ongoing mystery all week. Until now.
Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe reports that Hernandez is expected to be active for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, but he’ll likely play in a limited role.
Per Bedard, the specifics of Hernandez’s role will be determined “based on how he feels on Sunday,” although he’ll likely be a platoon-type tight end, perhaps rotating with Daniel Fells behind Rob Gronkowski.
Bedard suggests Hernandez might only play 15-20 snaps.
