Hogan, who officially is listed as questionable, traveled with the team on Sunday. The 29-year-old has been sidelined since New England's 21-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 29.
The expected return of Hogan would help aid in the Patriots' loss of tight end Rob Gronkowski, who will serve a one-game suspension on Monday for his hit to the back of the head of Buffalo rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White on Dec. 3.
Hogan has recorded 33 receptions for 438 yards and five touchdowns in eight games this season.
The Patriots (10-2) carry an eight-game winning streak into Hard Rock Stadium to face the Dolphins (5-7).
