[EDIT: ADDITIONAL INFO
reported the Texans release at the time:
Always get a little uneasy when I see these type of injury reports by the Texans.]
At the time we asked the question to Kubiak, he mentioned all the other guys that were there and said that Ed Reed was doing the rehabilitation per what the doctors want.
So maybe Dobbins has a physical issue. But there's other guys with physical issues rehabbing onsite. Doing mental reps.
Typically, if a guy is missing a practice for a reason, Kubiak shares that reason (like player being gone for graduations ceremony or something like that).
Still not there today.
Can't remember a player in Dobbins sort of situation not showing up for OTAs.
