Aaron Hernandez, who has been working his way back from an ankle injury, was not spotted at Patriots practice a short while ago, and now it looks like we know why, and it's not his injury.
Hernandez's brother, D.J., tweeted this within the last half-hour:
Im an uncle :). Avielle Janelle Hernandez was born. Love u Aaron and Shay. Can't wait to see u all.
He included a picture of the baby girl, who was born on the same day as her father.
Congrats to all!
