According to Jennifer Toland of the Worcester Telegram, it sounds like rookie receiver Aaron Dobson is getting closer to a return this week.

Dobson, who has missed the last three games with a foot injury, has practiced the last couple of days in a limited basis but it sounds like he may finally be back in action Sunday in Baltimore.

That would be good news for a Patriots team that has lacked a perimeter threat in recent weeks, and could definitely use all the additional firepower they can get against a tough Ravens' defense.

Dobson said that being on the sideline has been tough, but he's kept his head in the playbook to make sure that when he does get back out there, he'll be able to pick up where he left off.

"(Not playing) is a little frustrating," Dobson told the newspaper.  "But I'm just trying to keep my head in the right place and don't lose track of what I've been doing. I'm staying in my playbook and taking mental reps so I don't get behind."
