Aaron Hernandez is a "virtual certainty" to miss Week 5 when the New England Patriots play the Denver Broncos, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com. Sources tell Breer that the tight end, who is recovering from an ankle injury suffered in Week 2, could return for Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Impact: Hernandez seems to be making swift progress, but then again he didn't quite suffer a full high ankle sprain as was reported at the time of the injury. Fantasy owners who have held onto the tight end throughout his time on the bench should soon be repaid for their patience. If Julian Edelman continues to sit with a hand injury, it will mean a few more targets for Hernandez.
