FOXBORO — Chris Hogan and Marcus Cannon were both absent from Patriots practice Friday, wrapping up another week in which neither saw the practice field.
That more or less solidifies that Hogan (shoulder) and Cannon (ankle) won’t play on Sunday against the Bills. Both players last played in Week 8 against the Chargers and have missed the Patriots’ three games since.
Though Hogan has been limited to just eight games this season, he has caught a career-high five touchdowns while catching 54 passes for 438 yards. Cannon has played in seven games.
Remember when Brandin Cooks rode Rob Gronkowski around like a horse to celebrate a Patriots touchdown back in November?
Well, Gronk doing Gronk things in Miami managed to find about the only person he could ride.
Shaquille O'Neal, at 7-foot-1, gave 6-7 Gronk a ride on his shoulders as they celebrated the debut of "Shaq's Fun House" as part of the three-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
So, who won the dance-off?
Patriots safety Duron Harmon has returned to the U.S. after he was reportedly temporarily detained when he tried to enter Costa Rica with 58 grams of marijuana.
The Costa Rica Star reports that Harmon, 27, was traveling from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was temporarily detained Friday night in Costa Rica with the marijuana inside a can of Arizona ice tea, along with three pipes with cannabis oil, THC candy and four glass containers with compressed marijuana weighing a total of 4.3 grams.
"We are aware of the situation involving Duron Harmon Friday night in Costa Rica," the Patriots said in a statement. "He has since returned to the U.S. and we are seeking to gain more information. At this time, we have no further update."
Harmon, who has been with the Patriots his entire five-year NFL career, had four interceptions and 23 tackles last season.
