Chris Hogan (shoulder) returns to Patriots' practice on Wednesday

Brady Butler absent from indoor practice Hogan returns

New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since injuring his right shoulder October 29 against the Chargers, opening the possibility that he will be available for Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins.

With Rob Gronkowski suspended, Hogan should step right back in opposite Brandin Cooks for Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 14.

Hogan's quarterback, however, was absent.

Before going down with the shoulder injury which sidelined him for four games, Hogan was quickly becoming one of Brady's favorite targets in the Patriots offense. Wise and Butler have not missed practices this season. The reasons for Butler and Wise sitting out are unclear.

Hogan (shoulder) was spotted at Wednesday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Newly re-signed linebacker Jonathan Freeny also joined the Patriots for practice, filling Gronkowski's spot on the 53-man roster. Practice-squad tight end Will Tye, who previously wore No. 44, switched to No. 82. The Patriots are practicing in full pads with the heat turned up inside the Empower Fieldhouse.
