Why Dobson's camp status is important

Last weekend, Patriots reporter Mike Reiss of ESPN's NFL Nation provided an update on the status of the team's 2013 second-rounder, Aaron Dobson, who hauled in 37 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie.

"He underwent surgery on his left foot for a stress fracture in early March and, as expected, missed all practices in the spring," Reiss wrote. "It would be a surprise and disappointment if he's not ready for the start of training camp, as he's the type of outside receiver (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) who can help balance out the attack playing alongside Julian Edelman (5-11, 198) and Danny Amendola (5-11, 195) in the three-receiver package."

How much does Dobson's production in 2014 depend on his availability during training camp? Reiss addressed that in a Sports Nation chat on Thursday.
