The New England Patriots lost tight end Aaron Hernandez to an injury in the Arizona game Sunday and today they moved to fill his spot by signing free agent tight end Kellen Winslow. He played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the last two seasons, and spent the summer with the Seattle Seahawks, but was released prior to the start of the season. He played for the Cleveland Browns from 2004 to 2008, but missed the entire 2005 season with a knee injury.

CBS Sports on the Hernandez injury:

…high ankle sprains aren’t known as quick-healing injuries and Hernandez is critical to what New England does. There is a touch of good news though…Hernandez will miss a few weeks with the injury, but it might not be as much as has been reported elsewhere.

Now, it looks like former Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch has rejoined the Patriots. He was released just prior to the start of the season.

New England Patriots play Baltimore Sunday night. Pre-game starts @ 5pm, kick-off @ 8pm, LIVE on B98.5
