It's another setback for Dobson, who has battled various injuries since being taken by the Patriots in the second round of last year's draft. After breaking his foot last November, Dobson has amassed just 38 yards off three catches over 57 snaps this season. He needed just four plays against the Packers to tweak the hamstring.
Dobson's lack of production is concerning, but his loss won't sidetrack a Patriots offense averaging 29 points per game since Week 5.
Other injuries we're tracking on this fine Thursday:
"I think highly of all these players here," said O'Brien during Thursday's press conference. "As it relates to JD, this guy's been injured and it's time to clean it up."
