New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle) will not play against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday's annual London game. Hernandez did not travel with the team to London, and according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, his ankle "has not responded to treatment" and he can't make his cuts. He will use the team's Week 9 bye to rest up.
Hernandez sat out three games this season with a sprained ankle.
Fantasy Impact: Sounds like he either rushed back from the injury or aggravated it this week. Hernandez sat out Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday.
At any rate, pull him from your fantasy lineups - hopefully you have an emergency Plan B at TE with Hernandez out. Expect Rob Gronkowski to be even more involved in the Pats' offense.
