Phillip Dorsett reportedly week-to-week with hamstring injury

The Patriots have a short turnaround before playing the Giants on Thursday night and it looks like that will make it difficult for wide receiver Phillip Dorsett to be in the lineup.

Dorsett injured his hamstring during Sunday’s 33-7 win over Washington. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the injury is considered “minor,” but adds that Dorsett’s recovery timeline is week-to-week and that suggests Thursday will be too soon for Dorsett to get cleared.

Dorsett didn’t have a catch before getting hurt. He has 15 catches for 197 yards and three touchdowns on the season.

Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and Jakobi Meyers would be the top wideouts against the Giants if Dorsett is out of the lineup.

  1. Edelman, Gordon and Meyers will be fine. Watson should be in at TE this week after getting caught up and into the routine which will also help. Izzo made progress against Washington too.

    Plus Olszewski might get a look or to and a chance to prove himself at receiver.

    Take your time and don’t rush back. The Giants’ defense is not very good. Besides, this will allow Brady and Meyers to build a rapport…

    absolutely…lacosee and izzo, too. so ridiculous to see such little use until yesterday

  3. Ridiculous to see such little use?

    LaCosse proceeded to drop an easy ball that put them off schedule on the first possession. Outside of some blown coverages (especially the endzone TD to Izzo), those tight ends have still not proven serviceable in that offense.

    About the only “value” thus far for them was in 12 personnel to help out the poor offensive line for the run game.

    Stop pumping up mediocre players just so you can knock Tom and Josh for “underusing” them.

    They’ve barely been used. Edelman was once mediocre, too. Remember? Heck, even this summer bozo the clown fantasy football Pats fans who only love Brady, were claiming Dorsett was on the bubble.

    It’s hilarious.

    Turn off local sports radio, pretending Brady is perfect and every player BB brings and coaches up somehow stinks if they are not a HOF caliber player.

    Our entire society does this. Everything has to be an absolute, when it’s clearly not.

    What’s next the OL stinks even though it’s clearly the best in the conference? Do you people actually watch the rest of the league? No, you don’t.

  5. Wrap it up in an Ace bandage.
    They can call it the “Dorsett corset”.
    (Hashtag it and copyright it quick… There could be money to be made.)

  6. Certain poster continually overrates Pats street FA aquisitions and low round draft pks like they’re All Pros. That’s what steeler fans do. Pats are deep, but not everyone is a great player. Brady is a little too demanding about trust, but sometimes these guys are just not good enough. On a 53 man roster, that’s just how it is. Pats Oline is clearly the best in the AFC? Who doesn’t watch FB. Joke. Andrews and Wynn are on IR. SMason is having a terrible yr, so far. Cannon is not playing well, but has been hurt. Tuney has been great, but he’s prob gone after this yr. Brady is not playing well, but he’s clearly frustrated with what he has to work with and the constant pressure. How many times has he just said the heck with it and thrown it away? Don’t blame him.

  7. Amazing. You say the Pats have the best conference OLine? Who’s the one not watching any football? They’re terrible at run blocking. On pass plays, the tackles were consistently beat on inside moves yesterday, allowing pressure so quick that it couldn’t have been quicker had it come up A-Gap.

    Scar will work his magic over time and get them to serviceable level, but these guys are definitely not there yet.

    That’s it.. That’s all you got. Kryptonite. I was expecting more. But then again, I shouldn’t expect alot from a bills fan. Winning games is fun, isn’t it

    You’re on the Patriots? That is so cool! Tell me about the time you caught the game winning touchdown and returned a punt for a touchdown and returned a kickoff for a touchdown and intercepted a pass for a touchdown! So cool!
