Aaron Hernandez practiced for the New England Patriots on Wednesday, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Aaron Hernandez practiced Wednesday for the New England Patriots, according to the Boston Herald. Hernandez has been on the sidelines for the Pats since suffering an ankle injury in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals. He has now participated in three consecutive practices.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez was a full participant in practice last week Thursday and Friday before being ruled out against the Denver Broncos. He appears to be on his way to returning sooner than later, with this week's game against the Seattle Seahawks looking optimistic. Hernandez owners should have a backup ready in case, but don't be surprised if the tight end plays this weekend. He was excellent in the season opener, catching six passes for 59 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.
