Chris Hogan said he’s trying to prepare to play Monday but wouldn’t fully declare himself ready. “Day to day.”

Do you know who I completely forgot about? Chris “Crazy Eyes” Hogan. That’s not a knock on Hogan either. He’s a valuable piece to the offensive, in 8 games this season he’s racked up 33 receptions, 438 yards, and 5 touchdowns, that’s nothing to sneeze at.
However, ever since Hogan went down, the Patriots buzzsaw has continued to obliterate their opponents into itty bitty wood chips that Tom Brady has spread as mulch all through his Brookline estate. I mean you should see his front lawn, the landscaping is spectacular.
Though Hogan was spotted at practice today, there’s really no need to rush him back from an injury if his health is a little shaky. Even without Gronk this Monday, the Patriots offensive should still have enough weapons to take care of a Jay Cutler led Dolphins squad, especially considering how well the three headed running back beast of Dion Lewis, James White, and Rex Burkhead have been playing.
However, when the Patriots Instagram account starts dropping pictures of Hogan with the 👀 emoji his Monday night return seems that much more likely. Everyone knows that you only use 👀 when some real shit is about to go down, except in the NBA they’ve overused the eye emoji to the point that it no more meaning than punctuation mark.
Though now that I️ think about it, perhaps the 👀 is merely in preparation reference to those two massive sight seeing orbs that regularly bulge out of Hogan’s head.
