Updating a previous report, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (hamstring) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to a source.
Huddle Up: That makes two disappointing seasons in two years for the 2013 second-round pick, who was limited to only three receptions in four games in 2014. There's always plenty of break-out potential as long as remains in the Pats' system but the clock is most definitely ticking.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson was inactive for the Week 3 and 4 games because he 'mouthed off' to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, a source said Wednesday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Well, that explains the WR's absence, but it hardly makes fantasy GMs feel better about Dobson's prospects going forward or the overall ragged state of the Patriots' passing game. Steer clear unless you have no other viable options.

The New England Patriots have declared WR Aaron Dobson, CB Alfonzo Dennard, DL Casey Walker, OT Jordan Devey, OL Josh Kline, WR Kenbrell Thompkins, DE Zach Moore inactive for Week 4.
Huddle Up: The second-year wideouts have combined for 7 catches for 66 yards and no scores in 3 total games this season, but Brady will be relying on Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell tonight.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson had three catches for 57 yards and a touchdown in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.
Huddle Up: Dobson looked good, and if you have faith that his surgically-repaired foot holds up, he should be just behind Julian Edelman as the top Pats' WR on your draft board.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) will make his preseason debut Thursday, Aug. 28, in the final preseason game.
Huddle Up: Dobson, who finished his rookie year with 37 catches for 519 yards and 4 TDs, currently owns an ADP of 61 among all WRs -- third among the Pats' wideouts -- but he could prove to be a late-round steal or waiver-wire find should he take the sophomore-season leap that many expect.

Updating an ongoing story, New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson underwent surgery March 10 to have a screw permanently implanted into his injured left foot. Dobson had a stress fracture fixed, and the initial prognosis of two to three months is now an overly optimistic timetable. He began running in July but has not showcased any change-of-direction work in practice.
Huddle Up: The games that count are still more than a month away, but in the meantime, Dobson -- who's on the PUP list -- is falling behind fellow second-year WRs Kenbrell Thompkins & Josh Boyce and FA signee Brandon LaFell in the battle for WR pecking order on the squad.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) could be ready for for the start of training camp, according to a league source. It is still too early to know his status for sure, but this is the first time there has been optimism he could be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Dobson could have some late-round value as more than a few might be writing off the 2013 second-round pick after his injury and drop-filled 37-519-4 rookie season.

New England Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (foot) will find out in the next 10 to 14 days if the stress fracture in his foot has healed with rest or if he needs to undergo surgery. Dobson likely would not be ready for the start of offseason workouts if he has to undergo surgery.
Huddle Up: With Dobson looking to be a key component in the New England passing game in 2014, the team would prefer him to be involved in team activities from the get-go. Of course, having surgery now rather than this summer means Dobson will at least be available for the start of the season. Looks like we'll know more in a couple weeks.
