New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is not expected back anytime soon, but there are some encouraging signs of his recovery. Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald notes that Hernandez limped into the Patriots locker room with no brace, cast or boot on the ankle. He did, however, have a very sweet wheelie to get around.
Fantasy Impact: If fantasy points were awarded for "rehab swag" Hernandez would be a must-start in every league. As it stands, unfortunately, he's still not expected back until October at the earliest. Fantasy owners will have to make due for a few more weeks until the Top 5 TE returns.
