New England Patriots Aaron Dobson was benched for 'mouthing off'

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 2 (UPI) —

It was revealed Wednesday that New England Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson was benched for the last two games after "mouthing off" to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

The Boston Globe’s Shalise Manza Young tweeted the news after Dobson’s absence from the field was noticed during the the Sept. 21 win vs. Oakland and the Sept. 29 loss at Kansas City.

There have reportedly been concerns about Dobson’s "maturity issues."

It is uncertain whether he will be playing in Sunday’s game against Cincinnati.
