Chris Hogan “feeling good” after injuring thigh

Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan had four catches for 95 yards in two-plus quarters against the Texans last Saturday night, but didn’t get a chance to build on those numbers after he hurt his thigh.

Hogan went back to the locker room and didn’t return to the 34-16 win. It doesn’t sound like he has much concern about the injury keeping him from playing against the Steelers, however.

Hogan said that he felt he could have returned to the game had the Patriots needed his services and that he’s feeling even healthier now.

“Feeling good, just had a little minor setback in the game, but I’m working back every single day and feeling better every day,” Hogan said in comments distributed by the team.

The Patriots played without Malcolm Mitchell for the second straight game as he continues to deal with a knee injury. Hogan and Julian Edelman, who had eight catches for 139 yards, were the leading receivers in the divisional round win.

  1. Never even sniffed the playoffs in Buffalo. Now he has a shot at playing in the Super Bowl.

    I think we all know he’s going to play against the Steelers.

  2. Hogan has been a pleasant surprise for me this season. He comes up with some game-breaking catches. I never heard of him while he was in Buffalo.

  3. I guess they just need to platoon these receivers. None of them seem to be able to stay out there consistently… though Edelman has been consistent this year after getting over the latest foot injury.

    At least they are all reliable when they are out there, which is more than we could say in years past. Hopefully Floyd can say as much next year.

  4. Another terrific under the radar acquisition. Really extends the field for Brady, long bomb highlights abound this season. And he has bailed him out on a dozen occasions with back shoulder catches on the sideline. Has great instincts and technique, good size at 220, can really gallop, team player — the perfect guy for the Pats’ scheme.

  5. pittsburgh steelers team doctor richard rydze’s trial related to his illegal distribution of human growth hormone and anabolic steroids in underway (jury selection).

  6. Good news. With Gronk out and Bennett banged up the WR’s not named Edelman are a far more important factor than they would be otherwise. It’s been pretty obvious his ankle is still slowing Bennett and pranging that knee didn’t help matters.

  7. Sorry… the trial of pittsburgh steelers team doctor richard rydze is underway.

    TESTIMONY TODAY: pittsburgh steelers team doctor richard rydze’s brother testified today that he was asked by his brother to lie about receiving THOUSANDS of pills (12,728 pills) prescribed to him (lives in Iowa).

  8. The only team that’s doesn’t get tested for peds America…….. the new england patriots. Yeah Yeah I know one of the guys got tested earlier in the season but it looks too suspicious when no one gets busted for almost a decade.

  9. Being a Bills fan, it’s sacrilegious to root for the Patriots however I would love to see Chris Hogan get a ring.

    Not signing Hogan and letting him go to New England was just another awesome move by Bills GM Doug Whaley. It was a good thing we didn’t need him this year (insert eye roll here).

    Can’t wait for this clown to go over the middle against Shazier and Mitchell.

    Why bother when he can just torch Artie Burns up the seam?

    Speaking of decades, how many has it been since your team was relevant?
