The timetable of two-to-three months puts his recovery somewhere in June. Why wait to have the procedure? Well, it seems Dobson was waiting to see if the injury would heal on it’s own.
Worst case scenario, Dobson misses the entire June minicamp and some of the Patriots offseason workouts. The offseason program begins on April 21, about six weeks from now.
After the appropriate time period recovering, it would benefit Dobson to workout with Patriots QB, Tom Brady. Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston said Monday that while Edelman is not under contract for the upcoming season, he was putting in time with no. 12 in California.

Dobson finished with 37 receptions for 519 yards and four touchdowns his rookie season. He, along with the organization and fans, are hoping to make a jump in year two. This procedure is the first step in the right direction to a clean slate for next season.
