Aaron Hernandez injury update: Questionable, could come back for fantasy owners

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Aaron Hernandez is questionable for Week 6 against the Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Hernandez missed the past three games with an ankle sprain. He got in limited practice Wednesday and Thursday, but was held out on Friday.

Hernandez had six catches for 59 yards and a TD on the year before being injured.

Fantasy Impact: Bill Belichick openly despises the injury reports and intentionally muddles things, so for all we know Hernandez is either ready to play Sunday, or he had to have his foot amputated. Either way, the Boston beat writers think Hernandez will play Sunday, so take that as you will.

The Seahawks have arguably the best pass defense in the league, so even if Hernandez is active Sunday, it's a tough matchup for his comeback. Plug him in your lineup only if you're feeling lucky.
