Aaron Hernandez's status will be 'game-time' decision for Patriots

Andrew Burton

Aaron Hernandez would not commit to whether or not he'll be able to play on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

Aaron Hernandez was asked about whether or not he'd be able to play on Sunday, and he called it a game-time decision. Hernandez missed last week's game while dealing with a lingering ankle injury, and he has been limited in practice this week.

Hernandez has played in just four games in 2012, catching 17 passes for 143 yards and a pair of scores. He was forced to sit out New England's last game after being healthy enough to take part in the previous two contests. Hernandez also missed three weeks of action earlier in the season while dealing with the injury.

In addition to being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday, Hernandez missed Tuesday's practice because of the birth of his daughter. The child shares a birthday with Hernandez, and he called the event a "life-changer".

The Patriots next opponent is the Buffalo Bills. That game will kick off on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. ET.
