FOXBORO -- Aaron Hernandez spoke Thursday for the first time since injuring his right ankle on Sept. 16 against the Cardinals and admitted that he initially feared the ankle was broken when Julian Edelman and a Cardinals defender fell on him while he was engaged in a block.

"It's very difficult," Jets linebacker David Harris told Cimini. "You'll see defenses not even lined up and they're already running a play. They get a lot of extra yardage because of it. It causes guys to lose their mind. You can see it on film."...
