Hernandez among 14 questionable for Sunday

By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was among 14 players listed as questionable on the team's Friday injury report for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Hernandez missed Tuesday's practice for the birth of his daughter, but has practiced each of the three days since. He missed the team's last game on Oct. 28 after suffering a setback in his recovery from an ankle injury, according to ESPN senior NFL writer John Clayton.

Safety Patrick Chung had a hamstring injury added to his status. He was limited in practice on Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game. Chung has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury, but has not missed any practices this season.

Meanwhile, Chung was among four players with red (non-contact) jerseys hanging in their lockers after Friday's practice, along with cornerback Kyle Arrington, tight end Michael Hoomanawanui and running back Brandon Bolden.

Arrington left the last game with a concussion, and returned to practice this week. Hoomanawanui missed two games last month with a concussion, while Bolden has been out with a knee injury.

It is unclear when or if these players wore the no-contact jerseys in practice -- they have been spotted at the beginning of every recent practice in regular practice jerseys -- but in the case of Chung and Arrington, it raises some questions for their availability on Sunday.
