Patriots WR Aaron Dobson undergoes foot surgery, expected to miss 2-3 months

Last week, Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson @aarondobson17 was considering surgery to fix what ails his left foot.
We know what he has decided, and it is done. According to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, Dobson had surgery Monday to repair the stress fracture in the foot. Howe wrote that the early estimated recovery timetable for Dobson is 2-3 months.
Playoffs included, Dobson missed five games last season due to foot problems and was pretty much dogged by foot pain for the entire season half of the year.

Fantasy Analysis:

That timetable means Dobson's next formally organized football work likely will come in training camp. Dobson will miss OTAs, and those are valuable for a 22-year-old, high-ceiling wideout entering his second season. But I'm sure the absence will be just fine with the Pats as long as this operation solves Dobson's foot issue. With the state of the Patriots' receiving corps in flux -- see: Amendola, Danny; Edelman, Julian -- Dobson could take on a huge role in 2014. He has the physical tools to be a force at this level. You'll see him on a bunch of preseason sleeper lists if his foot heals properly.
