Report: Aaron Dobson Doubtful To Participate In Patriots Minicamp

Patriots Broncos FootballAaron Dobson will be playing from behind when he finally takes the field for the New England Patriots during training camp.

The second-year wide receiver is doubtful to participate in Patriots minicamp this week after undergoing foot surgery three months ago, a source told’s Nick Underhill on Monday. Dobson’s original timetable for recovery was set for two-to-three months, but the wideout was spotted earlier this month at Kevin Faulk’s celebrity softball game limping without wearing a walking boot.

Fellow second-year wide receivers Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins will see an increase in snaps with Dobson out. Veteran free-agent acquisition Brandon LaFell also will receive more opportunities with quarterback Tom Brady and the first-team unit.

Underhill also reported that cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is likely to participate in minicamp after missing organized team activities for undisclosed reasons.
