Hogan underwent outpatient surgery for "early stage basal and squamos cell carcinoma" on his face and shoulder on Friday.

The Associated Press reported that in early 2018, Hogan was treated for the same type of cancer.

Hogan also notably battled non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2015 and celebrated being five years cancer free from it last fall.

The Ravens' divisional round playoff game kicks off at 8:15 p.m. in Buffalo.
