Earlier this week, there was a report that the Patriots have benched WR Aaron Dobson for the last two weeks because he “mouthed off” to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked about that report on Friday, specifically whether Dobson was held out of the games for disciplinary reasons. Belichick said that “football” reasons were the only ones to explain why Dobson has been out of the lineup. Belichick was then asked whether the receiver and McDaniels had any confrontation.
“No and I’ll have a comment on that later,” Belichick said, via Mike Petraglia of WEEI.
Dobson, a 2nd round pick out of Marshall in the 2013 NFL draft, caught 37 balls for 519 yards and 4 TDs in 2013. This season he has only 1 catch for 13 yards in a game against the Vikings.
