Placed on reserve/retired list

The Saints placed Hogan on the reserve/retired list Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Hogan only recorded four catches for 41 yards and one touchdown through the first five game of the season. After five straight years -- split between Buffalo and New England -- registering over 400 yards receiving, the 33-year-old wideout has only recorded a total of 226 receiving yards over the past three seasons. Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Ty Montgomery will likely see increased snaps with Hogan gone.

Blanked by Washington

Hogan was targeted once but did not catch a pass during Sunday's 33-22 win over Washington.

Analysis: Hogan logged his fewest offensive snaps (eight) of the season with Kenny Stills becoming a larger part of the offense, but his snap count could bounce back after the Saints' Week 6 bye if Michael Thomas (ankle) remains on IR and Deonte Harris (hamstring) needs to miss time as well.

Bottled up by Patriots

Hogan was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 28-13 win over New England.

Analysis: Hogan finished fourth in snaps behind Marquez Callaway, Kenny Stills and Deonte Harris. While Hogan should remain apart of the rotation even with Stills quickly moving up the depth chart, he probably won't ever see enough playing to be anything more than a low-ceiling, touchdown-dependent fantasy option even before Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) are back in the mix.

Three targets against Saints

Hogan secured one of three targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.

Analysis: Hogan drew the start in this one opposite Ty Montgomery, but the 30-year-old ultimately finished fourth in offensive snaps among Saints receivers behind Marquez Callaway, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Deonte Harris, plus tight ends Adam Trautman and Juwan Johnson. While Hogan should remain in the rotation at receiver all season, it seems unlikely that he'll manage fantasy relevance at any point, especially once Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) and Michael Thomas (ankle) return to the fold.

Catches touchdown

Hogan caught his only target for a 10-yard touchdown during Sunday's 38-3 win over Green Bay.

Analysis: Hogan found an opening in the end zone in the third quarter, but he otherwise didn't make much noise. However, no other Saints wide receiver saw more than two targets in a game where Jameis Winston attempted only 20 passes, so it's hard to read too much into Sunday's stat lines. The main takeaway is that the New Orleans offense seems to be in good hands with Winston at the helm.

Rejoining New Orleans

Hogan is re-signing with the Saints on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Saints didn't want to guarantee Hogan's contract, but they apparently saw enough this summer to give him a spot on the 53-man roster. Like many other veterans, he'll rejoin the team for Week 1 after being waived/released on cutdown Tuesday last week. While Hogan figures to start off in a backup role, the state of the Saints' depth chart could allow him to get some snaps on offense Week 1 against the Packers.

Cut by New Orleans

Hogan was released by the Saints on Tuesday.

Analysis: While Hogan is off the team for now, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network mentioned that the Saints will try to bring the receiver back later in the week after rosters settle. In the meantime, the Saints will roll forward with Lil'Jordan Humphrey rounding out the depth chart under Michael Thomas (ankle), Tre'Quan Smith (undisclosed), Marquez Callaway, Deonte Harris and Ty Montgomery.

Inking deal with Saints

Hogan will sign a contract with the Saints, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hogan worked out for the Saints on Monday and will apparently land a gig in New Orleans thanks to the showing. He played in just five games for the Jets last season, racking up 14 catches for 118 yards on 26 targets He should bolster a Saints receiving corps that will likely be down star wideout Michael Thomas (ankle) in the early going.

Could sign with Saints

Hogan is working out for the Saints on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: With Michael Thomas recovering from ankle surgery, the Saints are taking a hard look at free-agent wideouts. The 33-year-old Hogan caught 14 passes in five games for the Jets last season, before joining the Premier Lacrosse League this spring. He made his professional lacrosse debut in June but now hopes to return to the NFL.

Joins Premier Lacrosse League

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.

Analysis: The Premier Lacrosse League season stretches from June 4 to September 19 which seems to suggest the veteran wide receiver will not play in the 2021 season, although it's possible Hogan 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.

Let go by Jets

Hogan (ankle) was activated off injured reserve and released by the Jets on Saturday.

Analysis: Hogan was a relatively crucial piece of the Jets passing attack before landing on injured reserve, accumulating 14 receptions for 118 yards 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.

Moved to IR

The Jets placed Hogan (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: 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. 18 matchup with the Dolphins 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 for at least the next month.

Diagnosed with high-ankle sprain

Coach Adam Gase said Monday that Hogan is nursing a high-ankle sprain, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: 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.

Oct 12, 2020 11:06 AM EST

MRI on tap

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.

Analysis: 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.

Oct 11, 2020 1:42 PM EST

Dealing with knee injury

Hogan was carted to the locker room with a left knee injury during Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Hogan caught all three of his targets for 20 yards before sustaining the injury toward the end of the 30-10 loss. The severity of the issue should come into focus by the time the Jets return to practice Wednesday.

Oct 11, 2020 1:20 PM EST

Good to go vs. ARI

Hogan (ribs/knee) is active Week 5 against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Hogan may have been limited in practice all week, but he has yet to allow various injuries to force his absence from any game in 2020. That trend will continue Sunday, as he'll suit up to work alongside Jamison Crowder and Jeff Smith in a game with Joe Flacco set to be under center. While Hogan's actual production has been hit-or-miss this season, he's been on the field for at least 51 snaps and garnered three or more targets in each game this season

Oct 11, 2020 8:32 AM EST

Deemed questionable for Week 5

Hogan (ribs/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Hogan will take an injury designation into the weekend after the ribs and knee issues resulted in him being listed as a limited participant on practice reports Wednesday through Friday. The wideout has been a mainstay on the injury report throughout the season, but he hasn't missed any games or lost out on much playing time as a result. He's played 80 or more percent of the offensive snaps in each of the Jets' four games to date, hauling in 11 of 23 targets for 98 yards.

Oct 9, 2020 2:03 PM EST

On injury report as usual

Hogan (ribs/knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Hogan's name has been a staple on the injury report since he hurt his ribs in Week 2, but he hasn't had to miss any additional game action since then. The veteran wide receiver is more likely than not to suit up against the Cardinals come Sunday, but his already limited value is slated to take another hit with backup quarterback Joe Flacco under center rather than Sam Darnold (shoulder).

Oct 7, 2020 1:42 PM EST

Four catches in loss

Hogan (ribs/knee) brought in four of eight targets for 23 yards in the Jets' 37-28 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.

Analysis: Hogan likely wasn't playing at full capacity, but he still filled a complementary role in a passing attack that was missing Breshad Perriman. The veteran possession receiver checked in second in receptions for the Jets on the night, but considering fellow wideout Jeff Smith's emergence Thursday and rookie Denzel Mims' (hamstring) pending return from injured reserve, Hogan may struggle for week-to-week relevancy once the pass-catching corps is at full strength.

Oct 1, 2020 10:13 PM EST

Will go against Broncos on TNF

Hogan (ribs/knee) is active for Thursday night's matchup against the Broncos.

Analysis: The 32-year-old AFC East journeyman has started for the Jets each of the past two games, though Week 3 against Indianapolis he was held without a catch after racking up six receptions and 75 yards Sept. 20 against the 49ers. With a myriad of injuries to the position, including those to Denzel Mims (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (ankle), Hogan stands as a top-three wide receiver option for the Jets alongside Jamison Crowder and Braxton Berrios. On the defensive side for Denver, the Broncos have allowed the second-most WR receptions in the NFL this season with 49.
