Thursday practice peek: Still no Dobson

FOXBOROUGH – Aaron Dobson remains the only player not spotted at Patriots practice, making it highly unlikely that the rookie receiver will be healthy enough to play in Saturday night’s AFC Divisional playoff game against the Colts.

Dobson is dealing with a foot injury, and was seen earlier this week wearing a walking boot. He hasn’t practiced since aggravating the injury in the regular-season finale.

Once again, practice is being held on the game field inside Gillette Stadium. Open locker room follows, with offensive lineman Logan Mankins scheduled to take questions at the podium.
