Glad he is getting better.
As for the injury itself, Dobson remains optimistic with the start of training camp looming on July 24.
“It’s doing better, man,” he said. “It’s getting better every day. Every week it’s getting better, so we’re just going to see where it’s at by the time camp starts.”
Dobson, who caught 37 passes last season for 519 yards and four touchdowns, said he’s made an effort to keep his physical limitations from holding back his overall progress.
“You’ve got to keep yourself focused on what your job is,” he said. “I know I can’t go out there and physically do it, but mentally you’ve got to be there. That’s the biggest part is just being there mentally because it’s easy for yourself to slip. So you’ve just got to stay on top of yourself and be responsible, really, and do your job.”
Getting back to that job is a matter of when, not if, and Dobson is itching to get back at it.
“I’m excited,” he said. “I’m going into my second year, you know. Just another year added so I’m just very excited to come into this team: great organization, great coaches, great people. So I’m just excited to start it again.”
Altho expectations for Dobson as a rookie WR was probably too high, I'm on the fence as to whether he was the biggest disappointment of all the WRs from last years team. With the media hyping him having no drops his senior year, I guess it was hard not to have higher expectations. He was still a rookie, so maybe the expectations were unrealistic anyway. I suppose one could argue that Amendola was more of a disappointment.
Hope Dobson heals up and any delays in practice/rehab won't hinder his second year leap. We need more production from last year's rookie WRs; especially Dobson.
