BOSTON (CBS) – Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is among 14 players “Questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Hernandez, who did not practice on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday, could potentially make his return from an ankle injury he suffered in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. On Friday, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said Hernandez “could be a game-time decision” in Seattle.
