    This is an odd report - more like a rumor from NESN. Everybody on the team is "questionable."

    I'm surprised Hernandez hasn't been accused of being a glass man yet.

    After playing against Seattle, then skipping the Rams + bye week, and now not playing on this third week, I'm starting to think he only aggravated his ankle by playing in Seattle.... that's not something I was hoping to hear going into week 10... :(

    But I agree, better sit him against the Bills, and have him ready for Houston and SF...

    Not a huge game this week. Keep him healthy for the end stretch

    Because he is not. The reason he is out was that he was brought back too soon (for the Jets game I think) and got re-injured. Just like I predicted....:mad: Stupid and predictable by the Patriots.

    To be quite honest, we haven't really needed him so far.

    And we've faced some pretty good Defenses.

    Hernandez came back for the Seahawks game which preceded the Jets game.

    If you apply the same rationale to lesser players and games played versus games available, he's looking fairly tender.

    Hernandez probably needs surgery on that ankle so no amount of rest is going to make much of a difference. They are going to get out of him what they can this year and he will get it fixed in the offseason.

    Disable Jersey

    This is Hernandez' third season. He only managed to play 14 games in each of his first two seasons. Tomorrow, he'll already be missing his fifth game of this season. He also missed games in both 2008 and 2009 (college, I'm not counting games not played in his first college season). If he's not glass yet, he's a bucket of sand and cullet that's waiting on a high-temperature furnace.

    Bad, weird timing. I'll be pleasantly shocked if we see him play another game this year.

    Now you know the reason why BB has so many TE's. :cool:

    I'm only proposing that others are put into that category because of their perceived lesser talent. Hernandez is a gun but I'm becoming concerned with his durability.

    I hope he can stay fit because he's a match up nightmare, even more so than Gronk given the flexibility he affords the Patriots.

    I guess thats why Shiancoe was activated.

    When Hernandez is healthy, do they keep all 5 of the TE's?

    A teammate fell on Hernandez's ankle and bent it so badly that some people in the forum at the time were worried about it being broken. It's not like he popped a hammie running wide open on a pass route or something like that.

    Meh. He suffers a hip injury in Dec vs GB in 2010 but plays vs the Jets in the playoffs. Hurts his knee vs Chargers, misses a couple of games but goes on to have a great year and has the ankle sprain this year.

    If you want to label him a fragile fine, but that would put Dowling and Chung in a far more fragile catagory.

    The comments on injuries to players never cease to amaze me. Makes me wonder if some fans every played the game,been around the game at any level, or just rely on baseball knowledge to form football opinions. :eek:

    I agree, Hernandez seems to get a free pass on the injury front while other players are called names. Pretty inconsistent treatment.

    A teammate didn't FALL on Hernandez's ankle. Edelman was TACKLED into Hernandez. There is a huge difference.

    One of the reasons that the media isn't expecting Hernandez to play is because Shiancoe was activated. Well, I saw it mentioned only briefly and it was swept aside, but Shiancoe was going to be activated now or by Thursday since his 3 weeks were up. The Pats needed to fill a roster spot since they had one open. Otherwise, they'd lose Matt Kopa off the practice squad since he's in his third year of PS eligibility.

    I agree. Football or any sport. Injuries are a part of the picture and there are no supermen. The injuries that make me crazy are the weird ones caused by steroids and HGH - muscles tearing away from bones, torn large muscles, etc.

    Knees, ankles, turf toe, achilles tendons, shoulders, hip pointers - all weak spots that don't signify anything about a player's toughness. These guys have loads of wear and tear coming into the pros. It's unfair to denigrate a player because of injury.

    Hernandez is one tough dude. And 1) I would not be surprised if he plays today - he practiced all week, and 2) if he does not, it's not that big a deal. He's much more important to this team on Thanksgiving Day against the Jets. I want a big turkey dinner and a bigger Patriots margin of victory.

    I don't mind this. This year we have scored an average of 39.5 points a game when he isn't playing and 28.6 points when he is playing. I'm counting arizona in neither because he had no stats and went down early. He was in the gameplan and clearly the offense froze after he went down.
