Dorsett exited Wednesday's practice early due to an unspecified injury, Andrew Callahan of The Springfield Republican reports.

The nature of Dorsett's injury might not be revealed unless he ends up missing a few days on account of the issue. The 2015 first-round pick is competing for a spot in New England's receiver corps and has a shot to earn a starting gig Week 1 if fully healthy. Maurice Harris, Dontrelle Inman, Jacobi Meyers and Braxton Berrios all stand to see increased reps as long as Dorsett remains absent.
