FOXBOROUGH — Tight end Aaron Hernandez was one of three Patriots to miss practice on Friday, but was listed by the team as questionable for Sunday’s game at Seattle.
The Patriots ruled the other two who did not practice — safety Steve Gregory (hip) and linebacker Tracy White (foot) — out for Sunday’s game at Seattle. Hernandez, and 13 others, were listed as questionable.
Hernandez hasn’t played in a game since injuring his right ankle against Arizona in the home opener Sept. 16. But he returned to practice last week, didn’t play against Denver, and has practiced this week. Coach Bill Belichick said before Friday’s practice that Hernandez could be a game-time decision. Or they might know something tomorrow, Belichick said.
The other Patriots listed as questionable: receivers Wes Welker (ankle) and Julian Edelman (hand), tight ends Rob Gronkowski (hip) and Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion), running backs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Shane Vereen (foot), defensive linemen Justin Francis (ankle) and Brandon Deaderick (ankle), offensive linemen Logan Mankins (calf/hip), Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee), and Nick McDonald (shoulder), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), and cornerback Sterling Moore (knee). All, like Hernandez, were limited in Friday’s practice.
