According to Max Henson, the Panthers have officially activated WR Chris Hogan from their injured reserve after designating him as a player to return and placed rookie OT Greg Little on IR in a corresponding move.
Hogan, 31, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Monmouth back in 2011. He had brief stints with the Giants and Dolphins before signing on with the Bills during the 2012 season.
Buffalo elected to bring Hogan back on exclusive rights deals for the next two seasons before the Patriots signed him away as a restricted free agent in 2016. Hogan played out the final year of his three-year, $12 million contract before agreeing to a one-year deal with the Panthers this offseason.
He was placed on injured reserve back in October and was designated as a player to return earlier this week.
In 2019, Hogan has appeared in four games and caught three passes for 24 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
Little, 22, was the No. 37 overall pick by the Panthers out of Mississippi. He received a four-year, $7,638,928 rookie contract, including a $3,618,076 signing bonus.
In 2019, Little appeared in four games and started three for the Panthers.
