Patriots Injury Report: Allen, Dobson Questionable For AFC Championship
BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots listed three players as questionable for Sunday’s AFC Championship game against the Broncos in Denver, including punter Ryan Allen.
Allen suffered a sprained AC joint in his shoulder last Saturday night in New England’s playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts, but was able to practice, in a limited role, all three days this week.
Also listed as questionable are rookie wide receivers Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins. Dobson returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since suffering a foot injury in Week 17 and was able to practice in a limited role each day this week.
“Right now, I feel like it’s OK. I have to do what I have to do,” Dobson said Friday in the Patriots locker room. “I’m trying not to think about it, go out there and do what I can do, and do it the best I can.”
Steve Beuaharnais is the only Patriot to be declared out for Sunday’s game. He is out with an illness.
