Aaron Dobson's brutally difficult season has come to a close.
The Patriots' 2013 second-round draft pick will be placed on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury Sunday against the Packers, according to a source. When the transaction is official, the wide receiver's season will be over.
The Herald reported in today's paper that IR has been discussed, and today's development added finality to the story.
The severity of the injury still has not been disclosed, but Dobson was ruled out almost immediately after he hobbled off the field while trying to chase down a deep ball late in the third quarter.
Brandon LaFell has taken over the role that many thought Dobson would fill in 2014, but injuries and inconsistent snaps never allowed Dobson's season to get off the ground.
