Dawson was activated off injured reserve last week after he missed the first 10 weeks of the season with the hamstring injury. The Patriots secondary is currently in solid health so it remains to be seen what role the rookie second-round pick will settle into, but he's nonetheless ready to make his NFL debut in Week 12.
Dawson was reaching the end of the 21-day return window as he returned to practice Oct. 24, but will now be able to make his NFL debut in 2018. The rookie second-round pick will now have the Patriots' bye in Week 11 so he should be good to go for the next game against the Jets on Nov. 25.
Dawson (hamstring) could return from injured reserve and play during Sunday's game against the Packers, Phil Perry of NBCsports.com reports.
Dawson, who landed on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury sustained in training camp, returned to practice last week and appears to have managed a full recovery. With Eric Rowe (groin) having been placed on injured reserve earlier this week, New England currently has an open roster spot which Dawson could occupy. If the rookie were activated from injured reserve, he would be eligible to suit up against the Packers on Sunday. It remains unclear how the Patriots plan to approach Dawson's situation, but it's worth noting that he has a reasonable chance to see the field Week 9.
