Add Chris Hogan to the list of absent Jets wide receivers. The team is placing Hogan on injured reserve due to a recent high ankle sprain the veteran AFC East target suffered, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com tweets.
Hogan, 32, has played in each of the Jets’ five games this season. He played in Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals despite being questionable with knee and rib injuries. But an ankle malady will pause Hogan’s season. Although it likely will not end Hogan’s ninth NFL slate, it represents the latest in a string of issues for Gang Green’s receiving corps.
The Jets, who were without No. 1 wideout Jamison Crowder for two weeks with a hamstring injury, have been without second-round rookie Denzel Mims all season. They are currently without Breshad Perriman, who has not played since Week 2 because of an ankle injury. Vyncint Smith is also on IR.
The Jets signed Hogan in August, doing so after Mims went down with the injury that has delayed his NFL debut. A former Bills and Patriots wideout, Hogan has 14 receptions for 118 yards this season. He spent the 2019 season with the Panthers. An IR stay shortened his Carolina season to seven games.
