Aaron Dobson has permanent screw in his foot
by Larry Hartstein |

When Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson had surgery March 10 to repair a stress fracture, doctors inserted a permanent screw "to aid the healing process, which speaks to the magnitude of the procedure," reports the Boston Herald.

Dobson didn't even start running until July. He's been doing conditioning work on the side at practice, "but his change-of-direction work hasn't been showcased much out in the open," the paper said.

The Patriots' medical staff wants to make sure Dobson can "handle the rigors of the job" before allowing him to practice, the report said.

Aaron Dobson's foot 'getting better every day'
by Larry Hartstein |

Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson, who had foot surgery in March, sounds confident he'll be available during training camp, reports the Boston Herald. "It’s doing better, man," he said. "It’s getting better every day. Every week it’s getting better, so we’re just going to see where it’s at by the time camp starts."

Dobson caught 37 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. He's tried to stay mentally sharp despite missing offseason workouts.

"You’ve got to keep yourself focused on what your job is," he said. "I know I can’t go out there and physically do it, but mentally you’ve got to be there. That’s the biggest part is just being there mentally because it’s easy for yourself to slip. So you’ve just got to stay on top of yourself and be responsible, really, and do your job."

Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins could battle for starting spot
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

When Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson (foot) is healthy he is expected to start this season, but he could face competition in training camp from Kenbrell Thompkins, reports ESPN.

The report says that with Dobson out, Thompkins would start in his place.

"He's built some nice momentum in spring camps, and Dobson now has to try to do the same in training camp," the report says. "Among the many competitions on the roster, that should be a fun one to watch. Dobson was drafted in the second round last year for a reason; they are expecting big things from him."
