Instead, Hernandez is being held in the medical ward. Authorities are concerned about how his celebrity may affect his safety among other inmates.
Hernandez has been charged with first-degree murder in the homicide of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player.
Officials in the jail are meeting to decide whether to keep Hernandez isolated or to put him in with a small group of inmates. Until they decide, Hernandez will stay in the medical wing and is only allowed out of his cell for one hour per day.
