After Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez left in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game against Denver, his health has been a main concern for New England followers. In Wednesday’s media session, he told several reporters “I feel Great” and he’s “ready to play”.
During Saturday’s game, Hernandez left the game with a head injury and he appeared to be given a concussion test on the sideline. He did not return.
Hernandez played a huge role in the divisional round and helping the Patriots advance to their sixth AFC Championship game in the last 10 years. The second-year TE rushed for a team leading 61 yards, while also hauling in four passes for 55 yards.
Hopefully, Hernandez is ready to go at full strength on Sunday. After all, he should be a key contributor in the New England offense. For that answer, however, we’ll have to wait until Sunday at 3 p.m.
