Aaron Hernandez Won’t Play Against Raiders, Albert Haynesworth Listed As Questionable


FOXBORO, Mass. — Tight end Aaron Hernandez (knee), tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back) and defensive lineman Mike Wright (concussion) will not travel to Oakland with the Patriots for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Hernandez will miss his second consecutive game with the injury. Vollmer will be out for the third time with his injury, including the last two games. This will be the third game that Wright has missed.

Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth (back) and cornerback Ras-I Dowling (hip), who did not practice Friday, are among the nine Patriots listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Cornerback Kyle Arrington (chest), cornerback Leigh Bodden (groin), safety Patrick Chung (hand), defensive lineman Shaun Ellis (knee), linebacker Gary Guyton (hamstring), wide receiver Taylor Price (hamstring) and offensive lineman Ryan Wendell (calf) were limited in all three practices this week and are also listed as questionable.

Arrington, Bodden, Chung, Ellis, Guyton and Wendell should be healthy enough to play against the Raiders, but the statuses of Haynesworth, Dowling and Price are still unclear.

Safety Josh Barrett (thumb) and linebacker Dane Fletcher (thumb) were full participants in all three practices and are listed as probable.

In some good news, linebacker Jerod Mayo (thigh), left guard Logan Mankins (illness) and punter Zoltan Mesko (left knee) were removed from the injury report, so they're good to go.
