BOSTON (CBS) — Another week of recovery still isn’t enough to get Aaron Hernandez back on the field.

According to NFL Network’s Albert Breer, Hernandez is not expected to play Sunday against the Colts.

Hernandez originally suffered his ankle injury in Week 2 against the Cardinals, forcing him out of action for three weeks. He returned in Week 6 against the Seahawks, catching six passes for 30 yards and a touchdown, and he played again the following week against the Jets, when he made five catches for 54 yards.

The following week, though, he did not fly with the team for the London game, after which came the Patriots’ bye week. The two-week hiatus was apparently not enough time for him to get healthy, as he missed last week’s game against Buffalo.

Big things were expected out of Hernandez this year, after he caught 79 passes for 910 yards and seven touchdowns last season before making another 19 catches and a pair of touchdowns in the playoffs. However, this season he’s made just 17 receptions for 143 yards and two scores.

The Patriots have managed just fine without him, though, as Tom Brady’s offense leads the NFL by a decent margin with 33.2 points per game and by a huge margin with 430.3 yards per game.
