FOXBORO, Mass. — It would take a minor miracle for Aaron Dobson to play for the New England Patriots on Saturday.
The rookie wide receiver missed his sixth straight practice Thursday. He’s been dealing with an injured foot since Week 12. He came back in Week 16 but was reinjured in New England’s final game against the Buffalo Bills.
The rest of the Patriots were present and accounted for on Thursday. Practice was held inside Gillette Stadium, and players were wearing sweats and shells.
Dobson is the only player expected to be listed as “out” on Thursday afternoon’s injury report. He was spotted in a walking boot in the locker room on Wednesday.
