AFC Championship Injury Reports: Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins Questionable

The New England Patriots released their injury report for Sunday’s game today, and for the most part, the Pats gave us good news. Wide receivers Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins are both questionable, along with punter Ryan Allen. Linebacker Steve Beaharnais was the only player rule out for New England.

It has been talked about all week long, but having Aaron Dobson available on the outside would be huge for New England, as he possesses the ability to open up a whole new dimension to this offense. His big frame allows him to make plays down the field, which would help Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola shake free in the middle. I would assume that Ryan Allen is playing, as the Patriots did not try out any other punters this week. It should also be noted that quarterback Tom Brady has been taken off of the injury report, after missing Wednesday’s session with an illness.
