Hogan (thigh) hauled in four of seven targets for 57 yards in the Patriots' 34-28 Super Bowl LI overtime loss to the Falcons. Hogan had one egregious drop down the sideline on the first possession of the second half, but otherwise turned in a solid complementary effort. However, he wasn't able to come close to replicating his nine-reception, 180-yard, two-touchdown AFC championship effort against the Steelers, as James White took on a pivotal role in the passing game with the Patriots facing a large second-half deficit Sunday. Although his season wrapped up in modest fashion, the 28-year-old racked up a career-high 680 yards in 2016 on a personal-best 17.9 YPC, and will return next year alongside Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell as the Patriots mount the defense of their Super Bowl title.
Hogan (thigh) is active for Sunday's Super Bowl LI against the Falcons. With a thigh injury in tow during the AFC championship game, Hogan was targeted early and often versus the Steelers, corralling nine of 12 passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns. In Sunday's do-or-die affair, he's a decent bet to strike against an Atlanta defense that gave up the sixth-most receptions to wide receivers during the regular season.
Hogan (thigh) is listed as questionable to play in the Super Bowl this Sunday against the Falcons. Hogan was limited by a thigh ailment throughout practice this week, but he's still widely anticipated to play. In fact, after catching nine passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns in New England's AFC championship triumph, Hogan could play a big role in the Patriots' vertical passing game come Sunday.
Hogan (thigh) was limited at Wednesday's practice. Hogan caught nine of 12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns against the Steelers in the AFC championship game and with no reported setbacks since then, we'll presume that his limitations Wednesday were simply maintenance-related.
Hogan (thigh) caught nine of 12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 36-17 win over the Steelers in the AFC championship game. Hogan had seven catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns by halftime, showing no limitations after exiting last week's win over the Texans in the third quarter. He's one of many weapons available to the versatile Patriots offense, so it's fair to expect a less prominent role for the 28-year-old wide receiver in the Super Bowl against a Falcons secondary that ranked 11th in yards allowed per passing attempt this season.
