Nate Solder back at practice, Aaron Dobson still out

It looks like Tom Brady has a good chance at having tackle Nate Solder protecting his blind side on Sunday against the Dolphins.

Solder suffered a concussion in last weekend’s victory over the Browns and missed Wednesday’s practice while going through the league’s concussion protocol. Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports that Solder was back at practice on Thursday, however.

Solder, who has never missed a regular season game in his three NFL seasons, will still need to pass another test before he’s cleared to play in a game, which should happen as long as his return to practice doesn’t result in a new round of concussion symptoms. If it does, New England will likely have to look elsewhere for a left tackle this weekend.

The only member of the Patriots who did not practice on Thursday was wide receiver Aaron Dobson. Dobson has missed the last two games and remains without a timetable for his return from a sprained foot.

    Solder is the answer to the question; “Who’d the Patriots get in return for Richard Seymour?”

    Slight correction: “It looks like Tom Brady has a good chance at having tackle Nate Solder holding the player on his blind side”

    Wait and see

    That’s good news. Would really like to see Dobson get back out there. He’s needed with Gronk down for the count.

    “I’m A Solder”, screamed a shirtless Nate in the locker room.

    It really doesn’t matter who the Pat’s put on the field, as long as Kraft’s,,, errrrrrrrrrrr,,, NFL officials are there as well. Especially when comes to protecting Brady.
