Aaron Hernandez TE NE Nov 20 '12
CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is expected to be active for New England's Thanksgiving tilt with the Jets, but reports he'll be in for a limited role.
"(Visanthe) Shiancoe (is) in line for targets," La Canfora tweeted. Other scribes reporting Hernandez is in line for a return haven't made mention of a limited role, but Hernandez played just 38-of-87 snaps when he returned from a month-long absence in Week 6. Even if Hernandez is limited against the Jets, he won't need more than 25-30 snaps to make an impact in fantasy leagues. He's a top-five option for Week 12.
