New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle) has a chance of playing in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. Coach Bill Belichick suggested, via Michael Whitmer of the Boston Globe, that Hernandez "might be a game time decision, or they might know sooner than that."
Fantasy Impact: Uh, thanks Bill. You really make my job easy. Anyway, Hernandez got in limited practice this week and most indications are that he will indeed suit up against the Seahawks. How effective he will be is another matter. Hernandez will undoubtedly be rusty after mising 3 1/2 games, and the Seahawks sport arguably the best pass defense in the league. Tentatively slot him in as a TE2 for now, but keep an eye out for the official injury reports.
