Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez made a big step in his return to regular-season action. He was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, his first such activity since he suffered his sprained ankle in Week 2. According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, Hernandez ran with a limp while going out on his first pass route during positional drills but as the session continued, he was able to stutter-step and plant on the foot.
Hernandez is not expected to play Sunday against the Broncos, but it seems like he's on track for a Week 6 comeback. And as I've been saying all along, that's going to cut down on Welker's target count. Definitely see what you can get for Welker while his value is this high and before Hernandez plays again. He is one of my biggest sell-highs right now.
