Reports: Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez may play against Seattle

There are signs that tight end Aaron Hernandez may return to the New England Patriots lineup this Sunday in Seattle, according to tweets from Andy Hart of and Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.

Hernandez was cleared to practice last week after being sidelined by an ankle injury in Week 2, that was initially diagnosed to be worse.

The injury has limited Hernandez to 6 catches for 59 yards and a touchdown this season after career highs of 79 catches for 910 yards and 7 touchdowns in 14 games last season.
