FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) and guard Logan Mankins (calf/hip) were limited in their return to practice Friday, and are questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Hernandez and Mankins are among 11 players questionable for the Patriots. Of that group, only linebacker Dont'a Hightower (hamstring) and receiver Julian Edelman (hand) did not play last week after being listed as questionable. Both presumably have better chances of playing Sunday.
Meanwhile, running back Brandon Bolden (knee), safety Steve Gregory (hip), and linebacker Tracy White (foot) were declared out for Sunday's game.
For the Jets, nose tackle Sione Pouha (low back) and safety Eric Smith (knee) are among four players listed as doubtful, while center Nick Mangold (ankle) is one of three players questionable.
