Aaron Hernandez was out of jail yesterday, but only for about an hour.

According to the Associated Press, the former Patriots tight end was taken from a jail to a hospital for an undisclosed problem, before returning to custody.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said Hernandez was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford on Saturday, but was back in the Bristol County jail in Dartmouth about an hour later.

Hodgson wouldn’t comment on the nature of the trip or the treatment.

Which makes him kind of like the Patriots, if you think about it.
