Aaron Hernandez injury update: Limited participation in practice, still a top fantasy tight end

Elsa

The New England tight end hasn't suffered any setbacks from his ankle injury and should be good-to-go in London. We break down the fantasy implications.

Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez heads another long list of New England players on the injury report on Wednesday, and was a limited participant with his ankle injury. Hernandez hasn't suffered any setbacks since returning from the injury, however, and there's no reason to think he won't be ready to play the Rams in London.

Joining him on the report were Rob Gronkowski (hip), Brandon Lloyd (knee), and Wes Welker (ankle) among others.

Fantasy Take: No concerns here, Bill Belichick just likes to keep his players fresh and scare fantasy owners. If there is a concern, it's that we're still waiting for that big Hernandez game. He's played in three games and has 143 yards with two touchdowns. It's encouraging to see him as a red zone threat, but we'd love to see more. The Patriots might be running it a lot on Sunday though against a strong Rams pass defense.
