BOSTON (CBS) – Aaron Hernandez is one of the seven Patriots that won’t be playing the Rams in London come Sunday afternoon.

Hernanez did not make the overseas trip with the team, and along with running back Brandon Bolden (knee), safeties Patrick Chung (shoulder) and Steve Gregory (hip), and corner Ras-I Dowling (thigh), is listed out for Sunday’s tilt with St. Louis at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

Hernandez missed three weeks this season due to an ankle injury he suffered in Week 2’s loss to the Cardinals. He returned two weeks ago in Seattle, and had 11 receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown in his two games back, but will now get two weeks off as the Patriots have their bye week following Sunday’s game.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted out Friday afternoon that Hernandez’ ankle is not responding to it’s treatment, and he has trouble cutting with the injury.

Chung missed New England’s Week 7 overtime win over the Jets with a shoulder injury, and was limited at practice on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Defensive end Trevor Scott and linebacker Tracy White are also out for Sunday.

11 players were listed as “questionable” for the Patriots, including defensive tackle Ron Brace (back), wide receiver Julian Edelman (hand), tight end Rob Gronkowski (hip), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (knee), guard Logan Mankins (calf/hip), linebacker Jerod Mayo (elbow/illness), offensive lineman Nick McDonald (shoulder), corner Sterling Moore (knee), offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee) and wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle).

The Patriots held a walkthrough on Friday at London’s famous Hyde Park following their early morning arrival overseas.
