FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots will be without Aaron Dobson on Sunday.
That means Kenbrell Thompkins will likely play a big role against the Texans. Dobson didn’t play in the second half against the Broncos. He has a foot injury.
Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) and Marcus Cannon (ankle) were also declared out for Week 13. Matthew Mulligan and Will Svitek will likely fill in for Hoomanawanui and Cannon.
Kyle Arrington (groin), Marquice Cole (shin), Alfonzo Dennard (knee), Steve Gregory (finger), Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm/hamstring), Aqib Talib (hip) and Chris White (back) are questionable against the Texans. Danny Amendola (groin), Tom Brady (right shoulder), Matthew Slater (wrist), Brandon Spikes (knee) and Shane Vereen (wrist) are probable in Week 13.
