Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 8. Hernandez didn't make the trip to London. There was some conjecture that he might be staying home for the birth of his child, but it appears that the ankle is the driving factor. The Patriots have a Week 9 bye, so we are expecting that he'll be his usual self with some rest. Brandon Lloyd and Julian Edelman may pick up the slack with Hernandez out.
