Perhaps there will be a surprise appearance at minicamp Tuesday, but it currently does not look like Aaron Dobson will be taking part in practices this week.
Dobson, who is recovering from March foot surgery and did not take part in organized team activities, is said to be doubtful for this week’s mandatory minicamp, according to a source.
The original timetable following the procedure was said to be 2-3 months. The wide receiver delayed the surgery to March because there was hope that his foot could heal without surgery. Dobson is no longer wearing a walking boot and is said to be “doing better.”
Dobson is losing valuable practice time. He will have to compete with Brandon LaFell, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce for snaps once he returns. Whoever wins the starting job will be fantasy relevant in 2014.
