For the first time since the early third quarter against Denver in Week 12, Aaron Dobson suited up with his Patriots teammates. The rookie receiver had been recovering from a left foot injury that left him walking around in a medical boot for at least some of the time in between.
His presence on the practice field today meant every player on the 53-man active roster and eight-man practice squad was taking part in practice – a rare perfect attendance.
With New England temps again in the upper 20s, the team once again took their workout indoors in the Dana-Farber Field House to help prepare for the warmer climate they'll face this Sunday in Miami.
It remains unclear just how much Dobson was able to do in practice (media was forced to leave following the stretching period) or if he'll be available for the game on Sunday against the Dolphins. In all likelihood, though, Dobson will be inactive for the next game. His status, and those of all the other injured players on the team, will be updated later this afternoon with the final injury report of the week.
