Dobson (hamstring) practiced in full Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Dobson sat out last Saturday's preseason game and multiple practices due to his injured hamstring, but that appears to be a thing of the past. He's be expected to play in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Bears.
Dobson (hamstring) has been ruled out of Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders. Dobson has been out a couple weeks with a hamstring injury. It isn't clear when he'll be back.
Dobson (hamstring) didn't play in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Cowboys. Bothered by a hamstring issue since the beginning of training camp, Dobson is falling behind in a fierce battle for a roster spot at wide receiver. With Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown (quad), J.J. Nelson, Jaron Brown (knee) and Chad Williams all locks to make the roster, the likes of Dobson, Brittan Golden, Jeremy Ross and Marquis Bundy are left competing for one spot. As a former second-round pick, Dobson might draw interest elsewhere if he's released by the Cardinals this preseason, though he hasn't done anything of note since his rookie year.
The Cardinals signed Dobson to a reserve/future contract Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. A second-round selection of the Patriots in 2013, Dobson's career has floundered, to say the least, as he was active just once this season (with the Lions in Week 4). Although he has 53 career catches, his last one occurred in Week 11 of the 2015 campaign. He'll be afforded an opportunity within a Cardinals receiving corps that is in some flux due the jettisoning of Michael Floyd and potential for Larry Fitzgerald to call it a career.
Dobson was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Dobson had been a spectator in the Lions' offense as of late. The emergence of Marvin Jones made Dobson an expendable piece.
