Aaron Dobson might be ready for training camp.
The New England Patriots wide receiver missed spring practices after undergoing offseason surgery on his foot, but there is now optimism that Dobson will be ready in time for training camp, according to a source.
The source added that it is still too early to be certain of Dobson’s status, but this is the first time since his March surgery that anyone has spoke of his situation with optimism.
Over 12 games during the regular season, Dobson caught 37 passes for 519 yards with four touchdowns. He is expected to play a major role in the passing game during his second season. In fact, one beat writer went as far as saying Dobson was a lock, along with Julian Edelman, among WRs to make the team. Missing time in camp could end up setting him back especially with a deep bunch of receivers on the roster, so it's a situation to monitor.
