Rest and rehab.
That's what New England Patriots' wide receiver Chris Hogan has been directed to do.
The Patriots' receiver corps caught a break with this one, as Hogan will be able to avoid surgery, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. He will rest and rehabilitate, and the team will reevaluate the situation after the bye week.
