EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New England tight end Aaron Hernandez is active for the Patriots' game against the New York Jets after missing the last three because of a sprained right ankle.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski is not active Thursday night, as expected, after breaking his left forearm in the Patriots' win over Indianapolis on Sunday. Rookie defensive end Chandler Jones (ankle), guard Logan Mankins (ankle, calf) and tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back, knee) also will not play.
Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley is active, as is backup quarterback Tim Tebow after both were listed as questionable. Kerley was limited with heel and hamstring issues, while Tebow was bothered by a rib injury. Running back-kick returner Joe McKnight (sprained right ankle) also is active.
