Patriots Dobson On Season Ending IR
The list of players on the New England Patriots injured reserve list continues to grow as wide receiver Aaron Dobson has been added with a season ending ankle sprain.Dobson left Monday's game against the Buffalo Bills and never returned. The injury is a high ankle sprain that will take 6-8 weeks to heal and effectively ends his season.
This was turning into one of the most productive seasons in his career with 8 games played and 3 starts. He had 141 receiving yards on 13 catches.
It's been a three year career marred by injuries for the former second round draft pick. He suffered a fractured foot that ended his rookie campaign and following off-season surgery to fix the problem missed the first eight weeks of the 2014 season. When he finally returned to the field he suffered a hamstring injury that put him on the IR.
To take Dobson's spot on the roster they have re-signed safety Dewey McDonald who they got after his release form the Indianapolis Colts and has most recently been on the Patriots practice squad.
Below is a list of Patriots players that have been placed on the season ending injured reserve list this season.
