Chris Hogan back on practice field

The Patriots won’t have tight end Rob Gronkowski in the lineup against the Dolphins on Monday night, but they may have wide receiver Chris Hogan back in action.

Hogan has missed the last four games with a shoulder injury, but multiple reporters who were at the team’s practice on Wednesday report that he was on the field working with his teammates. The Patriots won’t put out an injury report until Thursday, so the level of his participation will remain a mystery but getting back to any kind of work is a step in the right direction for Hogan.

Hogan had 33 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns in the first eight games of the season.

Several players were not spotted on the practice field, including quarterback Tom Brady, cornerback Malcolm Butler and linebacker Kyle Van Noy. Brady has not practiced the last two Wednesdays and the team may be doling out some extra rest for other players with an additional day to prepare before facing Miami.

  1. This could be good news. They have missed Hogan a lot especially with Edelman gone for the year. Now “Bonehead” Gronkowski goes postal and loses his cool and he’s out a game. It’s amazing that Brady carries on week after week and just gets it done with the players he’s given. One might think he’s turned a few would be practice squad players into stars, but that’s another discussion.

    I will say this, this Monday game against Miami has the feel of a trap game. Now that Gronk is out this I’m even more fearful. They could also be looking ahead to the Steelers game. I know the response is BB won’t let it happen but this is a potential set up, in my estimation.

    that makes no sense

    with edelman gone and other guys not playing or dinged up all over the roster, how can a mnf game on the road in the division, be a “trap” game?

  3. The day the schedule came out this looked like a tough game, especially as a Monday Nighter.

    But I also thought the Bills game in Buffalo would be tough, and the Raiders game, and the Broncos game, etc.

    I know the Dolphins D will come ready to play, but it’s hard to picture Cutler actually playing well.

  4. I’d really like to see Hogan get some LIMITED reps just so he gets refreshed on game speed & chemistry with Brady….
    Want to see the Pats POUND THE BALL with Gillislee & Burkhead & rest Lewis……
    & of course I’d enjoy seeing Dorsett get a lot of attention as well as Jacob Hollister very involved in the gameplan….
    Rest Lewis, Cooks, & ease Hogan back in……use Dola sparingly too…..
    Go Pats!!!

    last time out Miami seemed hell bent on making a season out of putting as many Pats as possible on IR.

    yeah.. they should rest the starters Monday then run the table to take the conference.

  6. Would be sort of funny if they did rest the starters. Start Hoyer and the practice squad on a Monday Night in prime time.

    Take that NFL…
