Update: Hernandez, who has been battling an ankle injury, could return to the Patriots' lineup as early as Thursday against Jets, the Boston Globe reports.
Recommendation: With Rob Gronkowski likely to miss 4-6 weeks, Hernandez will be needed and counted on heavily as soon as he is physically able. Next up for tight end targets behind him are Visanthe Shiancoe, Michael Hoomanawanui, and Daniel Fells.
