New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan was removed from the team's 21-13 win over the LA Chargers, late in the fourth quarter Sunday, with an apparent shoulder injury.

reportedly optimistic about the injury, but will have Hogan, who left in a sling, undergo and MRI on Monday to see the true severity.

If Hogan is out for a significant amount of time, the Pats also have the opportunity to utilize the next two days to maybe look outside the organization for an alternative, as the trade deadline is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
