as to Hogan, the worst possible thing we could do right now is rush him back...
He is going to be desperate to play, just force him to sit and learn this week Ease him back in to special teams after that, if he is doing well and feels fine after special teams vs Minnesota, then give him some time with the defense after the bye.
He's been sitting and learning since August, that's what they do when they're injured. They don't just go home and play nintendo.
I don't think he should play, but just to make sure he's healthy. 1 more week of learning doesn't mean much.
