Hogan will be eligible to be drafted in the Premier Lacrosse League after signing with the organization for the 2021 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Premier Lacrosse League season stretches from June 4 to Sept. 19, which seems to suggest the veteran wide receiver will not play in the 2021 NFL season. Hogan hasn't formally announced his retirement, however, so it's possible he could make a return to the NFL at some point. Of course, that's dependent on teams' interest in the 33-year-old, who played 11 games with the Jets last season before being cut from injured reserve.
The Jets cut Hogan (ankle) from injured reserve Saturday. Hogan had a role in the Jets passing attack before landing on injured reserve, accumulating 14 receptions for 118 yards over five games in large part due to a variety of injuries to the rest of the receiving corps. The veteran wide receiver appears to be healthy after a seven-week stint on injured reserve, but it remains to be seen if he can catch on with another squad before the end of the regular season.
The Jets placed Hogan (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Jets won't provide a timeline for Hogan's return from a high-ankle sprain until he has the injury assessed by foot/ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson within the next few days. At the very least, however, Hogan's placement on IR means that he'll be sidelined for at least three games, leaving the Jets' Nov. 9 matchup with the Patriots as his earliest possible return date. Before going down with the injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Hogan had hauled in 14 of 26 targets for 118 yards and no touchdowns through the Jets' first five games. The impending returns of Breshad Perriman (ankle), Vyncint Smith (abdomen) and Denzel Mims (hamstring) should help alleviate Hogan's absence.
Coach Adam Gase said Monday that Hogan is nursing a high-ankle sprain, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Hogan's injury, which forced him out of Sunday's loss against the Cardinals, will almost certainly cause him to miss time and could result in his placement on short-term IR. The veteran wideout is scheduled to undergo further tests to see if his ankle sustained additional damage. Hogan handled at least 80 percent of offensive snaps during the Jets' first four games of the season, so his loss is a notable blow to the team's already-depleted receiving corps.
Coach Adam Gase said that Hogan will have an MRI on Monday to evaluate the severity of the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Hogan entered the weekend questionable due to rib and knee injuries, and it's unclear if his departure Sunday is related. Gase wasn't very optimistic about Hogan's status, but we should have a better idea about what he's dealing with Monday.
