Comcast's Tom Curran filed this report:
Aaron Hernandez has a sprained MCL that could keep him down for at least a month.
The full diagnosis isn't in yet and the Boston Globe which first reported the MCL sprain had a timetable of 1 to 2 weeks. I'm hearing it could be as long as six weeks. More will be learned as the day progresses.
The key to this may be that the diagnosis isn't officially in, and the timetables we're hearing are just rumors. Obviously the earlier report of a couple of weeks is a big difference from newest one that said six weeks. Either way, it's time to start thinking about a backup.
