FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez appeared to have injured his right ankle on the Patriots' third offensive play of the game today.

He was helped back to the sideline and then straight to the locker room.

Update (1:38 p.m.): The Patriots have announced that his return is questionable.

Update (2:47 p.m.): The Globe's Shalise Manza Young reports that X-rays were negative for Hernandez, meaning there was no broken ankle. Any other potential damage is unknown at this point.
