New England tight end Aaron Hernandez (hip) returned to practice after spending the first two days of camp on the active/physically unable to perform list.
"They were taking it slow, making sure I was healthy because of the lockout," Hernandez said after practice. "But I feel good and I'm ready to go."
Hernandez will have his moments in 2011, but so will Rob Gronkowski. And the addition of Chad Ochocinco will impact all of the incumbent New England receivers. While Hernandez can serve as a weekly fantasy starter, he's far from the surest thing at the position.
