The New England Patriots are one win away from reaching the Super Bowl. Aaron Hernandez was with the Patriots last year when New England lost in the AFC Championship to the Baltimore Ravens. This year the former tight end will be in a prison cell at the Bristol County House of Correction in North Dartmouth, Mass., away from the rest of the prison population permitted to watch an hour of the game.

"No," Bristol Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson told the Boston Herald. "He's not allowed to watch any TV."

Because Hernandez is a high-profile inmate, charged with murder in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd, he is kept in isolation away from other prisoners and televisions. Three times a day for one hour at a time, Hernandez is placed in a 12-foot by 18-foot enclosed space and allowed to workout.

"There's no equipment. It's basically just a pen. He can do pushups, situps," said Hodgson.

"He's fine. For the most part, he's cooperative."
