There was plenty of anticipation surrounding former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and his scheduled court appearance for his probable cause hearing on Wednesday. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re going to have to wait even longer for the process to take place.

The judge has delayed the probable cause hearing for Hernandez until August 22–which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone considering this seemed to be a likely scenario heading into Wednesday. Hernandez was charged for the murder of Odin Lloyd last month and based off the evidence so far–the future doesn’t look good for the former Patriot star.

Once again, today’s appearance just adds to the amount of frustration when it comes to Hernandez and how much of a disappointment he turned out to be for the Patriots and their fans. Over the last couple of years, Hernandez had emerged as one of the league’s top pass-catching tight ends and was a key factor to the success surrounding New England’s offense.

Instead, the Patriots are left with no choice but to move on from life without their former tight end and focus on the upcoming 2013 season. Everybody was anxious to see more questions answered about this case on Wednesday, but it looks like we’re going to have to wait just a little bit longer for this probable cause hearing.

On the bright side, at least Hernandez was better dressed for his appearance in court today unlike last time when he was just wearing a plain white t-shirt.
