New England Patriots receiver Chris Hogan has been listed as inactive for Sunday’s pivotal conflict with the Pittsburgh Steelers resulting from a shoulder harm.

Hogan returned from a four-game absence solely to haul in a single move for one yard in final week’s loss to the Miami Dolphins, regardless of getting in a full workload.

In his second 12 months with the Patriots, Hogan was averaging 54 yards per contest earlier than he sustained his harm.

In his absence, the workforce has been relying closely on Danny Amendola. Tight finish Rob Gronkowski returns from a one-game suspension Sunday and the Patriots signed veteran Kenny Britt early within the week. Britt is energetic for the sport.
