It probably brings up the question why Aaron Dobson didnít address his foot injury in the month-plus since the New England Patriots last took action, but the rookie wide receiver will miss the next 2-3 months after undergoing surgery for a stress fracture.

Multiple reports confirmed the injury this week. The setback will put Dobson behind during the spring workout schedule, but should be ready for training camp come July.

Dobson, a second-round pick out of Marshall University, had 37 catches for 519 yards and four touchdowns in his 2013 rookie season. The injury to his foot came in Week 12.
