Tight end Aaron Hernandez, who has been out since week two with an ankle injury, did not practice again Friday and will be a game-time decision on Sunday for the New England Patriots, according to

Hernandez did have a travel bag in front of his locker on Friday for the Patriots cross-country flight to Seattle. However, that is not always an indicator that an injured player will make the road trip.

"We'll just have to see how it goes here," always cautious Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "He practiced late last week and did some things yesterday and Wednesday. We'll see how he is today and see if it set him back, or didn't set him back, and how that went. We'll have the day to evaluate it on Saturday, and we'll see where we're at on Sunday. It could be a game-time decision."
