Aaron Hernandez Banned From Watching Football

Aaron Hernandez Banned From Watching Football
Posted Tuesday, September 10th 2013 @ 2pm

Already out of professional football due to his ongoing murder case, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is now also banned from watching football while behind bars.  Authorities at the Connecticut jail where Hernandez is being held tell it's against their policy to allow inmates to watch football.  The 23-year-old is being held without bail while awaiting trial for the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.  Hernandez pled not guilty to murder and other charges during an arraignment hearing last week.  

His former Patriots teammates, meantime, took to the field over the weekend to begin their NFL season with a 23-21 win over the Buffalo Bills.
