Hogan (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Texans, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Hogan is officially listed as questionable to play, and while his availability is a plus for the Pats' wideout depth, it may be tough to have a breakout performance with Brandin Cooks, Danny Amendola (concussion), Phillip Dorsett (knee) and Rob Gronkowski (groin) also available.
Smith (illness) is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Smith was added to the injury report Friday because of the illness, and while he is officially listed as questionable, it's apparently not serious enough to hold him out.
Bradford did not suffer any structural damage to his injured left knee, and he remains week-to-week after a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed the injury is a bone bruise, NFL.com reports.
Bradford was able to participate in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, though he wasn't close to getting himself ready for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, which means Case Keenum will start again. It's certainly good news that Bradford didn't suffer a more serious injury, though he also doesn't appear to be that close to returning.
Newton (ankle, shoulder) is expected to start Sunday against the Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Newton is officially listed as questionable after being limited in practice this week, but his availability is obviously a big boost against a Saints defense that has really struggled against the pass early this season.
Fowler (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against Buffalo, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Fowler suffered his concussion last Sunday against the Cowboys, and while he was unable to practice much this week, he was cleared through the league's concussion protocol Saturday, clearing the way for his return.
