Aaron Hernandez not ruled out for Patriots

Otto Greule Jr

Despite not making the trip to London with the Patriots, tight end Aaron Hernandez still isn't ruled out for Sunday's game.

Although Aaron Hernandez didn't travel overseas with the team, he's still not being ruled out for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams.

Hernandez was missing from the New England Patriots walkthrough practice on Friday and it was confirmed that the tight end did not travel to London with the team, but it is now being reported by Chris Wesseling of Rotoworld.com via Twitter and ESPNBoston's Patriots reporter Mike Reiss that Hernandez "was expecting to be a new dad" in the coming days and could still be on the way to England this weekend.

Still in the midst of recovering from an ankle injury suffered earlier this season, Hernandez's absence from the team's walkthrough was first reported by Albert Breer of the NFL Network on Friday, who also said it "seems like he (Hernandez) didn't make the trip."

If Hernandez doesn't wind up in London for Sunday's contest, tight ends behind him on the Patriots' depth chart include Daniel Fells and Michael Hoomanawanui.
