Belichick on status of Hernandez

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The health of tight end Aaron Hernandez, who has missed the last two games with a knee injury, is one of the big pre-game questions for the Patriots.

Coach Bill Belichick was asked this morning if Hernandez has improved enough that he has a chance to play Sunday against the Jets.

"We'll see how it goes today, and based on how it goes today, we'll make a determination here tomorrow," he said.

Belichick added the Patriots plan to put Hernandez through warmups.

"If he's able to do something, he'll do it. If he can't, we'll try the same thing tomorrow," he said.
