SEATTLE, WA -- Aaron Hernandez is active for New England's matchup with Seattle.
The tight end returned to practice October 4 for the first time since injuring his ankle on September 16 against the Cardinals. He was held out of last weekend's game against Denver.
Hernandez's status for Sunday was uncertain because he was held out of the team's session on Friday.
Offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer was also deemed active after warmups and a long discussion with Patriots trainers.

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins' situation isn't far off from a character in HBO's "Ballers." And he played into those connections with a video on Twitter.

The slot receiver, who signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, shares some similarities with the fictional football player Rickey Jerret, a veteran receiver who wades through interest from a number of teams, including New England, during free agency. Because of those similarities, Hawkins spoofed on a scene from "Ballers" where Jerret works out with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Hawkins imposes his face over Jerret's.
