Dobson -- who underwent surgery on March 10 to repair a stress fracture in his left foot -- is unsure if he will be ready at the start of training camp, the Boston Globe reports. "I donít know, itís hard to say," Dobson said Tuesday. "Iím taking it one day at a time, rehabbing hard, just to get back out there as quick as I can."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There had been some reported optimism regarding the wideout's status for camp, but we suspect that the Patriots won't rush Dobson back into action, with the long haul in mind. On the plus side, Dobson has indicated that his foot is "getting better every day." Assuming his health as the summer progresses, Dobson, who caught 37 passes for 519 yards with four touchdowns in 12 games as a rookie last season, has a chance to emerge as a key downfield threat in the Patriots' offense this season.
Dobson -- who underwent surgery on March 10 to repair a stress fracture in his left foot -- has yet to participate in any practice sessions open to the media this offseason, the Boston Herald reports.

Dobson, who is bouncing back from March foot surgery, is iffy for this week's mandatory minicamp, masslive.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dobson delayed his surgery until March in the hope that his foot would heal without surgery, but he's well into his recovery at this stage, with the report noting that the wideout is no longer wearing a walking boot. Assuming no setbacks with his foot, Dobson is in a good position to play a key role in the Patriots' passing game this coming season, given that his size/speed combo provides a nice downfield complement to the likes of fellow wideouts Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.
Dobson underwent surgery to repair the stress fracture in his left foot Monday, and the procedure comes with an estimated recovery period of 2-to-3 months, the Boston Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dobson can essentially be ruled out for the beginning of the Patriots' offseason program on Apr. 21 and will likely miss a sizable chunk of OTAs. However, the pessimistic end of the recovery period (three months) would have him ready in mid-June, about 11 weeks before Week 1 of the 2014 season. Barring any major setbacks, Dobson should have plenty of time to compete for a role in the New England offense. It remains to be seen what the team will do this offseason, but the 2013 second-round pick will likely be in the mix for a significant role, if he isn't handed one.

2013

With Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd gone, Danny Amendola now heads the Patriots' wideout corps. Beyond that, it's an open competition for looks. The 6-3 210-pound Dobson could make a fantasy splash as a rookie, if he is able to master the Patriots' playbook in short order. He's a big-bodied wideout with good hands, who should have an opportunity to contribute out of the gate working the perimeter, while also potentially emerging as a red-zone threat. To that end, Dobson will have to compete for looks with the likes of Kenbrell Thompkins, Julian Edelman and fellow rookie Josh Boyce.
