Tight end Aaron Hernandez, who returned to practice a week ago after suffering a sprained ankle against Arizona, was not spotted during the media-access window.

Bill Belichick said at his press conference moments before practice began that Hernandez might be a game-time decision for the Seahawks game, or the Patriots could know sooner than that.

In the locker room, Hernandez was in good spirits and had a packed travel bag in front of his stall, and was bouncing around as he joked with linebackers coach Pepper Johnson. He politely declined to talk with reporters.

In addition to Hernandez, Steve Gregory (hip) and Tracy White (foot) were once again missing.

Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion) returned to practice.
