Patriots WR Chris Hogan had a simple, clear response when asked about rib injury

New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan is not concerned about his rib injury that has kept him limited in practice throughout the week.

During the Patriots Week 6 win against the New York Jets, he took a shot to the ribs from New York Jets safety Marcus Maye. He told reporters on Friday that he feels “good,” and when asked if he will play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons he responded, “yes,” via NESN’s Zach Cox.

While the Patriots have struggled at times during the 2017 season, one position group that has been strong is their wide receivers. Their top three, Hogan, Danny Amendola and Brandin Cooks all have more than 20 receptions on the year, and have filled different roles in the absence of Julian Edelman.

Amendola is that groups’ leader in receptions, while Cooks has proved to be a dynamic deep threat, averaging nearly 20 yards-per-reception. Hogan has been their most dependable target in the end zone. He had never tallied more than 4 touchdowns receptions in his entire career, and already has 5 in 2017.

If the Patriots have proven nothing else in 16 years, it’s that they will find players to catch passes from quarterback Tom Brady, and they will produce at a high level.
