Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday. Hernandez has missed all but four games this season with injury but returned to the field in Week 12, catching two passes for 36 yards and suffering no setbacks.
It's still very likely that Hernandez will start on Sunday against the Dolphins and that Bill Belichick will keep him on the practice injury report for awhile, as he usually does with his star athletes that have any potential issues at all.
Fantasy Take: Though Hernandez wasn't very productive in his first game back, he's still going to be a heavy target for Tom Brady, especially with Rob Gronkowski out for several weeks. Hernandez hasn't topped 59 yards yet this season but could be a major boon to teams during the fantasy playoffs.
