According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, wide receiver Aaron Dobson may need surgery to repair his injured foot. Dobson missed a couple of games last year because of this injury, and it really stunted his growth within Tom Brady’s offense.

Dobson will be working out and rehabbing at Gillette Stadium for the next couple weeks, and the medical staff will determine within 10-14 days if Dobson will ultimately need surgery to repair the stress fracture in his left foot, according to a team source. So far, Dobson hasn’t been able to run this offseason while nursing the injury that impacted the majority of his rookie year. If Dobson needs surgery, it’s unclear how long the recovery timetable would be, but it sounds like the April 21 start of offseason workouts would be in doubt.

Howe also reported that Dobson will be heading to California this offseason, to work with Brady. This is great news for the young wideout, because if he can get his timing down with his quarterback, he could explode onto the NFL scene.

Dobson caught 37 passes for 519 yards, and four touchdowns in his first season with the Patriots.
