FOXBORO -- After missing Thursday's walkthrough with a thigh injury, Chris Hogan returned to the practice field Friday.

Hogan was present at the media portion of practice Friday, which was the final session before Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It was the first practice Hogan has missed all year. He was seen in the locker room afterwards walking with a slight limp. Game designations will come out Friday afternoon.

Also, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic, he's expected to play.

Besides Hogan, everyone was present, which is good news for the game Sunday.

Kansas City and New England will kick off Sunday night at 8:20 p.m.
