New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez told Shalie Manza Young of the Boston Globe that head coach Bill Belichick ended up kissing his elbow after he injured it during practice.

“I had a little bruise on my elbow and I was whining about it, and he was just showing me the love of a father figure and he gave me a kiss on the elbow,” said Hernandez.

Hernandez was asked if he asked Belichick to make it better.

“No, I didn’t ask him,” Hernandez said, smiling, per the Globe. “I damn sure liked it though. Felt some love.”
