TE Aaron Hernandez: 'Ready to play'


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The health of tight end Aaron Hernandez is of primary importance to the Patriots this week. Hernandez left Saturday's win over the Broncos with a head injury in the fourth quarter -- he appeared to be given a concussion test on the sideline -- and didn't return.

After the game, Hernandez said he was OK, and that remains the case today.

"I feel great," Hernandez told reporters. "Ready to play."

More from Hernandez a bit later.
