It's usually not a good thing to be listed as questionable on the injury report. For the Patriots, however, it's a placeholder. Fourteen Patriots are listed as questionable to play Sunday versus the Seahawks. The list includes Wes Welker , Rob Gronkowski , Brandon Bolden and Shane Vereen. But one of the more concerning questionable players is tight end Aaron Hernandez . He was limited in the first two practices of the week but then didn't practice at all Friday. Hernandez is trying to make his way back from a sprained ankle that he suffered back in Week 2. He will be a game-time decision.
Welker, Gronk and Bolden will be fine. Edelman has missed the past couple of games due to an unspecified hand injury. Even if he does play, he's not a fantasy option.
Hernandez is the real story here. It is unclear if Hernandez's DNP can be attributed to a setback or a day of rest. Since this is a late-afternoon game, I would play it safe and bench Hernandez for one more week.
