Report: No surgery for Chris Hogan

Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan hurt his shoulder in last Sunday’s victory over the Chargers and went for an MRI on Monday to check out the damage.

The results reportedly brought good news. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Hogan will not need to have surgery to repair any injury.

Rapoport adds that Hogan will be re-evaluated after the bye, which suggests he may not miss any game action. The Patriots won’t be releasing an injury report until a week from Wednesday so it should be some time before further clues to Hogan’s status.

Anything that keeps Hogan in the lineup will be good news for the Patriots, who already have two wideouts on injured reserve. Hogan has 33 catches for 438 yards and is tied with Rob Gronkowski for the team lead with five touchdown catches.

  1. And by hurt his shoulder, we mean was intentionally speared in the side, helmet first, by some Chargers doofus who also almost broke his own neck. The Chargers are like one of the street gangs in Beat It — vaguely threatening but always done in by their tendency to dance around when it really matters.

    ============================================

    i will bet you brady has more passes of 20 plus yards and 40 plus yards this season than your QB, you know why im so sure?? cause he leads the league in both categories.

  5. The two yard out misses a key feature of that option: Yards after the catch.
    The pass may be 2-4 yards… but these receivers often get the same or, often, much more, after the reception.

    Consider the net result before making a snarky quip.

    My limited understanding about play calling is you take what they give you… and keep moving the ball.

    If 2 yard outs are beating the opponent then whoever they arent covering there will get the ball. Until they cover that then Brady will burn them deep. Whatever. I never understand your obsession with how the Pats win. Its that they win that matters.

  7. “The two yard out misses a key feature of that option: Yards after the catch.
    The pass may be 2-4 yards… but these receivers often get the same or, often, much more, after the reception.”

    Actually what it misses is last season Brady was #2 in the league in completions of 20+ yards in the air, and earlier this season he was #1 though I believe he’s fallen to 2 or 3 at this point. Ie; he’s one of the top 3 long ball passers in the league.

    The other thing it ignores is an awful lot of INTs happen when you just toss up long balls for grabs without someone actually being open. The people who are silly enough to call Brady “2 yard Tom” obviously think its better to toss balls up for grabs all the time with the resulting high number of INTs rather than throwing a shorter pass to an open receiver.

    But hey, actual facts rarely enter into the thought process of the people who constantly criticize Brady. “He’s done, he’s this, he’s that”, actually what he is doing is leading the lead in passing, top 3 in long completions and remains one of the single best players ever to play in the NFL.

  8. to harrison: good additional qualification.
    Also, he throws it so low… and it’s not as cool looking as big jump balls…but is done to limit tips and INTs

    Thank you! Most of the trolls that have spent years dogging New England have been undone by their excellence and have pretty much packed it in and now troll Pats fans when they troll at all. But in spite of a complete absence of anything to back it up you are still plugging away no matter what distortions, fabrications and outright lies it takes or how many id’s you need to create to appear absolutely foolish and bereft of any football knowledge you are up for it even if it means race baiting no rock is too small for you to live under.

  10. I am not chippy. That is someone else. Just pointing out the fact that tom brady is the GOAT of system QB’s. and the belicheat is the most overrated coach ever!

  11. Hogan has been a great addition and has played even better this year than last year. He is often targeted by Brady on third down to move the chains and he caught one thrown behind him last Sunday. If you watch him closely you will see the separation he gets from the defender. He has an uncanny ability to get open.

  12. It seems clear that the Patriots passing attack is forcing defenses to cover more of the field. Yes, the are throwing the ball downfield more but they are also throwing it ten to twenty yards past the line of scrimmage. This opens up passes to the runningbacks. I like Burkhead because it really is 50/50 pass or run when he’s in the game. It makes it easier for Brady to change a play atvthe line of scrimmage.

  13. ‘ tom brady is the GOAT of system QB’s’

    Every football player, QB’s included, is part of a system. He can not succeed without the right game plan, good coaching, and 10 other guys doing their job.

    If he has to overcoming a misconceived game plan, bad coaching, or poor play from his teammates, he can not succeed.

    Therefore every QB is a system QB.

    So then, who would you say is primarily responsible for this close to 20 year dynasty by your brilliant powers of deduction?
