Pats could be without TE

The New England Patriots have made heavy use of their two young tight ends in the passing game the first two weeks of the season in Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. But there’s a good chance they’re down one of those players for their Week 3 matchup with the Bills.

According to Boston Herald reporter Ian Rapoport, Hernandez has a sprained MCL, with a prognosis of 1-2 weeks, meaning he wouldn’t be available for Sunday’s game at Ralph Wilson Stadium. While that would certainly help Buffalo to have one less tight end to worry about, Gronkowski has been a beast the first two weeks.

He’s got 10 catches for 172 yards and three touchdowns in New England’s first two ball games, and is the team’s leading scorer. Of course Buffalo’s Scott Chandler isn’t far off with seven catches for 79 yards and three touchdowns.
