On "Uno Sports Tonight" Hardy from 98.5 The Sports Hub and the Boston's Globe's Ben Volin talk about the Patriots leaving behind the Aaron Hernandez situation as football begins.

Gary Tanguay said the Hernandez case will be a "cloud that's going to hang over this team."

Maybe it will off the field Hardy said but the team captains' statements on Thursday seem to separate it from the on-the-field day-to-day work.

"They made no indication this is going to impact X's and O's" Hardy said.

Volin said the timing of not having Hernandez could have an impact.
