DENVER — The Patriots will get a boost at wide receiver with the return of Aaron Dobson, who missed last week’s playoff game with a stress fracture in his left foot.

Dobson is listed as active for Sunday’s AFC Championship against the Denver Broncos after suffering the stress fracture against the Buffalo Bills in Week 17 of the regular season. He had been listed as questionable along with wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins (concussion/hip), who is inactive.

Patriots punter Ryan Allen (shoulder) is also active for the Patriots. He left last week’s playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts with a shoulder injury and had been listed as questionable.

Inactive for the Patriots are linebacker Steve Beauharnais (illness), DT Isaac Sopoaga, DB Justin Green, OL Chris Barker, TE D.J. Williams, and DE Jake Bequette.

New Broncos cornerback Marquice Cole, formerly of the Patriots, was listed as inactive along with Zac Dysert, Ronnie Hillman, Vinston Painter, Chris Kuper, Joel Dreessen, and Sione Fua.
