New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez underwent an X-ray on his ankle after suffering an injury during a game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and the results were negative, according to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe. The X-ray showed no bone damage, but further tests will need to be done to figure out the severity of the ankle injury.
Hernandez signed a long-term contract extension with the Patriots recently, and is expected to be a major part of New England's offense going forward. The 22-year-old out of Florida caught 79 passes for 910 yards and seven touchdowns in 2011. He picked right up where left off in Week 1, grabbed six balls for 59 yards and a score in the Patriots' win over the Tennessee Titans.
