Hernandez was arrested on murder charges in June after Lloyd's bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park less than a mile from Hernandez's house in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.
Hernandez was cut from the Patriots after his arrest. He has pleaded not guilty to Lloyd's murder and is being held in jail pending his trial.
Prosecutors have said Hernandez had a disagreement with Lloyd and shot him five times in the early hours of June 17. The weapon has not been recovered.
