FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) and defensive lineman Justin Francis (ankle) were both ruled out for Sunday's game on the team's Friday injury report.

Defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick, despite not being spotted by reporters at the start of Friday's workout, was listed as limited on the injury report, and is questionable for Sunday night.

Also questionable is guard Logan Mankins (hip), who was added to the injury report on Thursday and was limited in practice on Friday.
