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.
