Aaron Dobson’s foot feels better, Sunday status remains unclear

Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson returned to practice this week for the first time since aggravating an existing foot injury in the team’s regular season finale, but he said Friday he’s still unsure whether or not he’ll be in the lineup on Sunday.

Mike Reiss of reports that Dobson had a travel bag in his locker for Friday’s flight to Denver ahead of the AFC Championship Game, but that doesn’t always mean that a player will be making the trip. Dobson said his foot is feeling better and has held up well after limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday, although the final decision remains up in the air.

“I don’t really know what my situation is going to be this weekend, but I’ll go out there today, see how it feels, and go from there,” Dobson said.

Kenbrell Thompkins has also been limited in practice this week because of a concussion, so Dobson’s not the only uncertain party in the receiving corps. The Patriots will release their final injury report for Sunday later on Friday, which will give us some sense of where both rookie receivers stand for the matchup with the Broncos.

    Really want to see both Dobson and Thompkins playing on Sunday. It will help Brady a lot to have those tall, strong targets instead of just the short guys.

    Still waiting on a breakout game from Dobson . He could be Lawrence Maroney in disguise.

    He did have two break out games. Dolphins and Steelers. This guy can get behind the secondary. He has had injuries though. Let him loose sunday.

    Please no. If Calvin Johnson is Megatron, Aaron Dobson is Droptimus Prime.

    This guy is our best hope to blast behind the defense on play action. Assuming the Broncos will load up to stop Blount, it’ll give chances for the Pats wideouts to beat man coverage from 35 year old Champ and 34 year old Jammer. Hope he plays because if the Pats can hit a deep one early, Denver will need to back off and then it’s Blount time.
