The New England Patriots may have also lost tight end Aaron Hernandez for a significant amount of time due to an injury sustained during their 20-18 defeat by Arizona in Week 2 action. Wide receiver Julian Edelman rolled up on Hernandez's ankle, and Hernandez was unable to return to the game. He finished the game on crutches, watching from the sideline.
Hernandez reportedly underwent X-rays, the results of which showed no broken bones. He'll likely undergo an MRI as the Patriots attempt to determine the severity of the injury on Monday morning, reports Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.
The Patriots signed tight end Daniel Fells during the offseason, who will likely slot in as the Patriots' second tight end if he has recovered from his shin injury. Fantasy owners should probably expect more touches from Wes Welker and Edelman if Hernandez is out for the long term.
