FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots are going into Saturday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts mostly healthy, but one key player remains missing from practice.
Rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson was absent from practice on Tuesday. He reinjured his foot during the Patriots’ Week 17 win over the Buffalo Bills. He missed three weeks earlier this season with the same foot injury.
A new wide receiver also was spotted at practice. He was a shorter wideout wearing No. 84. It’s not clear whether he was signed to the active roster or the practice squad.
Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard returned to practice after missing all three sessions last week. He’s dealing with shoulder and knee injuries.
