Chris Hogan, Marcus Cannon miss full week of practice

FOXBORO — Chris Hogan and Marcus Cannon were both absent from Patriots practice Friday, wrapping up another week in which neither saw the practice field. 

MORE PATRIOTS:

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.

He's come a long way from the 2000 NFL combine before he was made the 199th pick overall:

Brady's TB12 Method famously touts pliability, eschews weight training and promotes what some see as an untraditional diet for an elite athlete - remember him eating a strawberry with Stephen Colbert this past winter?

The soon-to-be-41-year-old (Aug. 3) Patriots quarterback will apparently have an early start on getting into football shape. He plans to be at training camp ahead of Wednesday's veteran reporting date.
