Phillip Dorsett is filling headlines, and it’s not anything related to a score or an award. The Patriots player was injured during practice, and here’s the update on his condition.
New England’s wide receiver is fine, and his injury was actually a scare. Dorsett will return to practice Wednesday, and he’s ready for the preseason game with the Philadelphia Eagles scheduled for Wednesday.
Dorsett suffered a knee injury at the end of the Pats training camp practice. He sustained the injury while running the crossing route during 11-on-11 drills. The wide receiver was on the field for a few moments, then walked slowly off the field accompanied by two members of the training staff.
The wide receiver had a visit to the sideline medical tent, and sit on a Gatorade cooler for a while. He put his helmet back, and went on catching passes. Dorsett skipped the team drills.
He walked on his own away from the practice area, and used a golf cart to the locker room.
Dorsett will have a bigger role this season. This only adds to the pressure, and he’s not the only player going through this. The Super Bowl is the most important thing at the moment, and every NFL player is getting ready for it.
We didn’t see running backs Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead on the field. Offensive tackle Marcus Cannon, linebacker Harvey Langi and special teamer Matthew Slater were absent, too.
Defensive end Trey Flowers, cornerbacks Ryan Lewis and Duke Dawson, and receiver Kenny Britt were limited, and spent most of the practice on a separate field.
Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was limited Monday, but was a full participant Tuesday.
Yes, Patriots are trying different scenarios, and hopefully they will find the winning formula. Will they win the Super Bowl? Who knows…
