A foot injury will keep Patriots receiver Aaron Dobson from playing against the Colts Saturday night, as the team designated the rookie as “out” on Friday’s injury report.

Two players were designated as “questionable” by the Patriots: cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (knee/shoulder) and receiver Kenbrell Thompkins (hip).


The Colts declared receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who injured a hamstring in last Saturday’s wild-card win, out for the game.
