    I personally feel Hernandez on the field makes the d single gronk.  Hernandez comes back and gronk gets more targets.

    would give us an extra quality receiver....but I'm thinking against the Seahawks, we don't need him.

    I'm not sure how i feel about this. If his ankle is still so far from being 100% he can only see limited playing time than I'd prefer he didn't play rather than set back his recovery.

    Re: Aaron Hernandez expected to play tomorrow in a limited role.

    I agree with glenr. Hernandez is a key weapon in this offense and if he still hasn't fully recovered why risk putting him out there? He is signed for years and you don't want these type of injuries to keep accuring. I would think the Pats would really let him get 100% before putting him out there, we have plenty of weapons to survive till Hernandez is ready. However, if the trainers say he could go and I am sure Hernandez wants to get out there, the coaches better use him in plays that mean something if it's going to be a limited role.

    If the Doc's clear him, play him.

    That's good if he's okay. If it was a risk that he would have a setback they wouldn't play him, unless this was a playoff game . Now we need this guy to stay healthy cause he's a player.

    They've played it conservatively with him thus far and it appears that they are continuing to do so.  I don't see him taking the field unless the Pats are convinced he's ready.

    Re: Aaron Hernandez expected to play tomorrow in a limited role.

    I imagine his ankle is pretty much 100% if he is playing - I would think it's more a matter of him not having contact or being in game shape for the reason he will be "limited". If he plays 15-20 snaps he will probably get what they can't give him in practice right now...game speed and contact.

    Of course if he wrenches his ankle in the second quarter...I didn't write this^^.

    Re: Aaron Hernandez expected to play tomorrow in a limited role.

    Seattle is a blitzing team. The TE's are probably going to be doing a good amount of blocking today and that puts more stress on the ankle than route running. If Fells' blocking is up to par than I'd give him another week. As far as I know Hernandez has still only seen limited practice time. If he's not healthy enough for a few consecutive days of full practice then how is he healthy enough to play a regular season game against an opponent we should be able to beat without him?

    If you use the argument some are using in DC with regard to playing Stras or not they would say play him, the future is now, the h--- with worrying about the players long term health !!
