According to Doug Kyed of, left tackle Nate Solder returned to practice for the New England Patriots today, one day removed from being diagnosed with a concussion. His return bodes well for his presence on the field this Sunday, in what could be a division clinching contest for the Pats.

Wide receiver Aaron Dobson was not on the practice field, as he continues to recover from a foot injury that he suffered a few weeks ago. Nick Underhill of reported that it doesn’t look good for Dobson to play this week in Miami, but the team hopes that he will be able to return soon. Despite having Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce available at the receiver position, having Dobson healthy come January will be extremely important to the Patriots, as his ability to stretch the field with his size is very impressive.

Both Kyed and Underhill also noted that cornerback Marquice Cole was removed from the injury report, after being listed as limited with a shin injury.
