From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Hogan should be an upgrade after he came through in Week 2, but he was dealing with some sort of lower body injury all day. He reassured reporters that he was ok, but we'll be watching practice reports closely.

General News (Thu Sep 21): partially participated in Thursday's practice.

Week 3: vs Houston Texans

All WR vs HOU

FBG says: Good matchup. Tom Brady's Week 2 - however inflated it was by the horrid New Orleans "defense" - showed definitively that he can excel even with a depleted group of pass-catchers. Down to just three healthy wideouts (plus special-teamer Matt Slater), Brady carved up the Saints for 447 yards and 3 touchdowns on 30-of-39 passing. There's no one more adept at utilizing the right weapon at the right time. There is indeed a blueprint to slowing Brady: hefty, organic pressure from an aggressive front seven that allows its secondary to win the numbers game in the intermediate areas. But that's easier said than done, considering Brady's rocket-speed release and the team's strong pass-blocking line. New addition Brandin Cooks will look to get on track in Week 3, while Chris Hogan will help test the Texans' banged-up secondary on the boundary. Rob Gronkowski was dazzling against the Saints, but may be marginalized in the game plan against Houston's elite tight-end defense. It's hard to gauge the progress of Houston's pass defense. Through two games, they've faced the league's two most anemic passing games: Blake Bortles and the Jaguars in Week 1, followed by a Bengals "attack" that has already fired its offensive coordinator. From what we can tell, though, this pass defense looks similar to last year's dominant unit - and it's hard to overstate the return of J.J. Watt. With Watt on board, the Texans boast at least four dynamic pass rushers. And the loss of cornerback A.J. Bouye hasn't been felt much: the Texans held A.J. Green largely in check last Thursday, allowing a 50-yard deep ball but just 17 yards on his other 7 targets. Unfortunately, they'll press on without the services of cornerback Kevin Johnson, who sprained his MCL in Week 2, for awhile. His snaps will be filled by 34-year-old Jonathan Joseph and special-teams specialist Marcus Burley. It's not a big downgrade, but a noticeable one, especially with a high-octane Patriots offense on tap. And Joseph may be limited Sunday by a Week 2 shoulder injury of his own.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs NO (6 / 5 / 78 / 1 rec)

Chris Hogan was the most consistent wide receiver on the day for the Patriots, busting a couple long gains. His touchdown was off a pick play with Philip Dorsett. Initially, the referees called offensive pass interference, but the flag was picked up, making the touchdown good. Notably, Hogan was also limping during parts of the second half, and acted as a semi-decoy on a couple plays. His injury is worth monitoring.

2017 Week 1 vs KC (5 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec, 3 / 17 / 0 rush)

Expectations were high for Hogan, but he simply could not produce against the Chiefs. He was well covered for most of the game, and in fact had more carries than catches, as the Patriots used him on 3 reverse sweeps with mixed results. Hogan should see more success in the future, but will remain a volatile asset on a week to week basis.

Patriots | Limited practice for Chris Hogan (Thu Sep 21, 04:41 PM) - New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Our View: If Hogan is healthy and ready to go, he should be a solid producer against Houston this weekend, a borderline WR2/WR3. The knee is a concern but he should be able to continue playing at a high level this year and fulfilling a promise we saw last season.
