CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is expected to be active for New England's Thanksgiving tilt with the Jets, but reports he'll be in for a limited role.
"(Visanthe) Shiancoe (is) in line for targets," La Canfora tweeted. Other scribes reporting Hernandez is in line for a return haven't made mention of a limited role, but Hernandez played just 38-of-87 snaps when he returned from a month-long absence in Week 6. Even if Hernandez is limited against the Jets, he won't need more than 25-30 snaps to make an impact in fantasy leagues. He's a top-five option for Week 12.
