WR Dobson (foot) back at practice

December, 13, 2013
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson returned to practice Friday for the first time since injuring a foot in Week 12.

While it remains unclear if he will play in Week 15, it's a positive sign in his recovery.

Left tackle Nate Solder (concussion) practiced for the second consecutive day, though his official status for Sunday is not yet known.

The Patriots once again practiced indoors in an effort to acclimate to warmer temperatures, as it is expected to be in the 80s this Sunday in Miami.

The team practiced in shells and helmets for the third straight day.

Wide receiver Josh Boyce, quarterback Ryan Mallett, defensive tackle Marcus Forston and defensive back Kanorris Davis wore black uniforms as the practice players of the week for Week 14.

An official practice report with game statuses for the injured players will be released later this afternoon.
