12:56 PM ET 04.22 | The New England Patriots could be without tight end Aaron Hernandez for the next four months. Hernandez had surgery on his shoulder earlier this offseason, and could be ready to go by the time the Patriots open their regular season on Sept. 8. However, there's a chance he could begin the year on the physically unable to perform list if rehab doesn't go as smoothly as expected. The Patriots are in a tough spot when it comes to their tight ends. Both Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski are dealing with major injuries, and Gronkowski has already experienced major setbacks in his recovery. The explosive tight end had surgery to repair a forearm that was broken twice this past year, and needed a third procedure after the arm became infected.

All the more reason to stock up on receivers. And not just bargain basement.

Good thing they kept Wes.... Oh wait. They replaced him with a guy who gets hurt all of the time.

How many more challenges does Bill Belichick need? Geez.

Just think how long it would take for these players to recover if they WEREN'T using performance enhancers
