Aaron Hernandez walked through the Patriots locker room Wednesday without a noticeable limp. We break down the fantasy implications.

Aaron Hernandez "breezed through the locker room without a limp" on Wednesday according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. Of course, the same reporter said the exact same thing just last week, so take the news for what it's worth. The New England Patriots tight end is recovering from an ankle injury suffered in Week 2 of the regular season.

Fantasy Impact: All reports so far have indicated that Hernandez is progressing well. With that said, he still has yet to participate in practice since leaving the stadium in a walking boot and crutches against the Arizona Cardinals. Hernandez hasn't technically been ruled out for the Pats' Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos, but don't count on the tight end providing any fantasy value until he has returned to the practice field, at the very least.
