Dobson’s injury left the Patriots with just four receivers, including Matthew Slater, who is primarily a special teams player. Dobson started the game in place of the injured Julian Edelman, who had surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot.
The Patriots added Dobson to the injury report before the game with a back injury.
Dobson was targeted twice in the game and had one catch for 17 yards before he was injured in the second quarter.
