ESPN's Mike Reiss indicates that
The Patriots added wideouts Chris Hogan and Nate Washington via free agency, so Dobson faces some added competition for a role in the team's offense after enduring another injury-marred campaign in 2015, in which he was limited to eight games. If Dobson -- who caught 13 passes for 141 yards in that span -- can re-stablish his health this summer, however, keeping him around wouldn't be especially costly for the Patriots, since he's in the final year of his rookie contract, which carries a salary cap hit of $1,090,845.
The New England Patriots have placed Aaron Dobson (ankle) on IR, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
With Dobson headed to IR, Julian Edelman out indefinitely, plus Danny Amendola and Keshawn Martin also banged up, we'd expect the Patriots to make a move to add some wideout depth in the coming days.
Aaron Dobson is dealing with a high ankle sprain, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.
We'd expect the New England Patriots to rule the wideout out for Sunday night's game against the Broncos later this week, and beyond that it's plausible he will miss additional time. With Julian Edelman out, plus Danny Amendola and Keshawn Martin also hobbled, the Patriots' depth at wideout is currently taxed.
Aaron Dobson (ankle) is expected to miss at least Sunday's game at Denver, CSN New England reports.
Dobson was removed from Monday's win against the Bills due to an ankle concern and didn't return, placing a cloud over his upcoming availability. Fortunately, he avoided any broken bones when X-rays were returned negative, but the extent of his absence will now ride on any ligament damage in the foot. With Danny Amendola (knee) and Keshawn Martin (hamstring) questionable to suit up in Week 12, the New England Patriots could be down to Brandon LaFell, Chris Harper, and Matthew Slater at wide receiver, barring any additions to the 53-man roster.
