Hernandez MCL could keep him down a month

At the ridiculous rate the Patriots' tight ends are producing you knew the only thing stopping them would be injury. And here's the first one. Aaron Hernandez has a sprained MCL that could keep him down for at least a month. The full diagnosis isn't in yet and the Boston Globe which first reported the MCL sprain had a timetable of 1 to 2 weeks. I'm hearing it could be as long as six weeks. More will be learned as the day progresses. Hernandez so far has 14 catches for 165 yards and two touchdowns. He and Rob Gronkowski have combined for 24 catches, 337 yards and five touchdowns. Tom E.
