Aaron Dobson out for season opener

AMHERST, N.Y. — Those waiting to see what rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson will do for the Patriots this season will have to wait a little bit longer.

The 22-year-old Marshal product was declared out for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills after being limited the entire week with a hamstring injury.

Along with Dobson, the Patriots also declared running back Brandon Bolden (knee), safety Duron Harmon (hamstring), defensive back Nate Ebner (ankle), and tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) as officially out for Sunday’s game. They join tackle Will Svitek, who is out with a knee injury.

Danny Amendola, who was listed as probable for Sunday’s game, is expected to play after being listed as probable with a groin injury.
