Aaron Dobson (foot) is still not practicing.
The Patriots haven't revealed the specifics of Dobson's injury, but he hasn't practiced since going down in Week 12. It would be a major surprise if he was able to play against the Dolphins Sunday. That leaves either Kenbrell Thompkins (questionable, hip) or Josh Boyce to man the "X" spot.

Aaron Dobson (foot) was spotted in a walking boot Sunday.
The Patriots haven't revealed the exact extent of Dobson's injury, but being in a boot a full two weeks after sustaining his injury is not a good sign. Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) is also inactive Sunday, turning the "X" spot into a hand-off situation. Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Josh Boyce are the Patriots' top-three wideouts against the Browns.

Aaron Dobson (foot) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.
Dobson hasn't practiced since injuring his foot in the Week 12 overtime win over the Broncos. He has no timetable for return and won't play this week against the Browns. Kenbrell Thompkins should handle X receiver duties as long as he can get over a hip injury of his own. Consider Dobson week-to-week.

Aaron Dobson (foot) is not practicing again Thursday.
Dobson has no timetable for his return. The fact that the Patriots re-signed Austin Collie on Thursday suggests he isn't close. If Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) can get healthy enough to suit up against the Browns, he'll play the majority of snaps at the X spot.

Aaron Dobson (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.
Per the Boston Herald, there's no specific timetable for Dobson's return. His sprained foot simply needs time to rest. Consider both Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) very questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

MassLive.com reports Aaron Dobson is dealing with a sprained foot.
Dobson has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, but the full details of his injury had been unclear throughout the week. It's possible he'll require an extended absence, though beat writer Nick Underhill suggests the Partriots are simply being cautious. Dobson's status for Week 14 is up in the air. Kenbrell Thompkins will replace him in the X receiver role and is worth a look as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues.

The Patriots have ruled out Aaron Dobson (foot) for Week 13.
The extent of Dobson's foot injury is unclear, and we don't expect the secretive Patriots to tell anyone. Look for Kenbrell Thompkins in the full-time X receiver role, where he's worth a look as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues this week. Owners in 12-team formats can consider dropping Dobson, who may not rejoin the starting lineup upon return, depending on Thompkins' performance.
