Through the first two games of the season, Hernandez has had 14 receptions. He was targeted 18 times.

He had 165 receiving yards. He also had two touchdown receptions.

With Hernandez out of the lineup, Brady will likely turn to the young Rob Gronkowski. He has had 10 receptions through the first two games. He has been targeted 13 times.

Gronkowski has had 172 receiving yards. He also had three touchdowns in those two contests.

At press time, it is not clear how long Hernandez will be out with this knee injury. It could be a short-term injury, where he may miss a week or several weeks.

The team will further evaluate him. If it’s a more serious injury, he could be out longer than the aforementioned several weeks.
