Aaron Dobson still not practicing for Patriots

Aaron Dobson AP

Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson appears to be a long shot to play on Saturday against the Colts.

Dobson is out of practice for the second consecutive day with a foot injury, which makes it unlikely that he would be ready to go in three days.

A rookie second-round draft pick, Dobson played in 12 regular season games, with nine starts. He was fifth on the team with 37 catches, fourth on the team with 519 receiving yards and tied for second on the team with four receiving touchdowns.

Other than Dobson, all players on the Patriots’ active roster are practicing today.

    Not great news but not the end of the world. As long as Thompkins plays Brady has at least one tall, strong target.

    It doesn’t matter… the referees will call some bogus pass interference penalties for tom brady.

    just echoing @doctorrustbelt – this game will be won with brady just tossing it 50-60 yards at a time in the end zone and the zebras will call it PI each time. It’s going to be a long day for the colts / any team that plays the game the right way (without cheating or referee help).

    Well, look who came out of hiding, old Rusty. Yeah, it will definitely be tough if Dobson can’t go against the Bengals, who, being the 3 seed, automatically play NE.

    Oh…..oh wait. Yeah, nevermind. At least you can still troll any and every Patriots topic, so you’ve got that going for you.

    Certainly of the most gifted of all Dr. James Dobson’s children.

    You can feel the fear of the Patriots haters heightening as they get closer to another Super Bowl run. Wow its going to be great. In true Belichick fashion, I’ve charted each and every one of your names as to throw it in your face should they take home the crown.

    You mean those same Broncos that cheated the salary cap limits those 2 years they won the SB, basically playing with an illegal roster?

    Dobson is Moss hegiht and weight (an inch smaller and a half dozen pounds lighter).

    Dobson has proved to be the best deep threat for the Patriots this year. I like Thompkins (even at 6’1). Hopefully, this won’t hurt the Patriots Offense this Saturday night.

    This will pay off big time…IF…if the Patriots can go to the AFC Championship game without Dobson. You get Dobson healthier and the Broncos/Chargers don’t know how to game plan as well for the Patriots WR’s with Dobson in the lineup with Thompkins, Edleman, Amendola and Collie.

    They Tee off same time all the other Losers T off,Scrubs.On the Real,I’m just wondering when all these injuries will finally catch up with us,Gooooo Pats….

  16. harrisonhits2 says: Jan 8, 2014 12:44 PM

    Lol yeah its not like the Pats had any crap calls against them this year or any other year ever.

    Oh wait there have been plenty over the years.

    This season has had the worst officiating I’ve seen in almost 50 years of watching the NFL. There are a lot of reasons for it but every single team in the league got both screwed by the refs and helped by them at different times.

    Crying that that “Pats get all the calls” doesn’t change the fact that they had plenty of bad calls agains them. The difference is that Belichick and the Pats players never ever whine about the refs. They take responsibility and say they were outcoached or outplayed and need to do a better job.

    Blaming the refs, the last refuge of fans whose teams played too poorly to win. Pats haters are like politicians, they figure if they scream their lies loud enough over and over again in an outraged tone that the lies will become truth.

    .

    Despite the expert pre game analysis of the Patriots – Colts match up by those living in cities where the NFL season has ended, like most games the turnovers will decide it.

    Go colts!

    The more some of these pathetic people post, the more amusement we Pats fans get,so keep at it,fellas! Let me explain why I feel that way because I am sure you people I am talking about are as interested in that as we are in seeing post after post of the same utterly unsupportable tinfoil hatted nonsense over and over. :D .

    I am not amused because I feel the team I love is a bunch of infallible juggernauts. Far from it. They are flawed. They have a lot of injuries. They’re not playing at an elite level at any aspect of the game. They shouldn’t even be the #2 seed. I don’t expect them to win the SB this year in any way. But I love this version of the Pats no matter what happens. Not one Pats squad outside the ones that have won rings have been more mentally and physically tough and as full of fight despite the odds from #1 to #53 and beyond than this one. And that’s what makes watching the NFL enjoyable to me, rooting for a team made up like this one.

    And if there are sad losers out there who can’t appreciate what makes real NFL football so great to watch and instead they live to discredit other teams instead of root for their own, well, yay you, I guess.

    The Patriots have been the most successful organization in the NFL for 20 years now. It’s no coincidence it happened when the franchise was purchased by Robert Kraft, a fan who came down from the stands and rescued the team from those who would have moved them to St. Louis or LA. Their success stems from the organizational structure as much as the people it brings in. People can hate all they want. It’s more of a sign of jealous admiration than anything else.

  21. bigwii says: Jan 8, 2014 3:29 PM

    I think the Pats haters are scared, scared that after all the injuries to all their best players except Brady they are still the #2 seed. These people have been trying for years to say the Pats are going downhill, but they’re only getting better.

    They might not win the Super Bowl this year, but next year when they get healthy and add a couple more players through the draft they’ll be the scariest team in the AFC.

    They just want to hope that doesn’t happen, and they should be scared. Hate why’ll you can, I guess.

    Going to rain so I think the passing game will be like the Buffalo game. Blount and company ramming it down the Colts throats.
