Dorsett sustained a knee injury on a hard fall late in Sunday's loss to the Lions and required a series of tests Monday that included an MRI, but he's expected to be available for the Patriots' Week 4 matchup with the Dolphins, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.
The injury resulted in Dorsett briefly departing in the fourth quarter, but he returned to the field for the Patriots' final offensive series, finishing the night with no catches on five targets. The Patriots were still concerned enough about Dorsett's health to send him in for precautionary tests, but it doesn't sound like the knee issue is anything that will significantly hinder him during Week 4 preparations. More concerning for Dorsett's outlook than the knee concern is the Patriots' recent acquisition of Josh Gordon, who could be cleared to return from a hamstring injury to make his team debut against Miami. Once Gordon gets comfortable with the new playbook and forges a rapport with quarterback Tom Brady, it's not hard to envision Dorsett's snap count taking a considerable hit. 10:41 am (EST)
- Dorsett was on the field for 45 of a possible 48 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-10 loss to the Lions.
- Dorsett was on the field for 56 of the Patriots' 61 snaps on offense in Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Jaguars.
- Dorsett nabbed all seven of his targets for 66 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Texans. All Phillip Dorsett News
