Aaron Dobson is officially active for New England in Sunday's AFC Championship game against Denver.

The receiver missed last weekend's divisional playoff game with a foot injury. Though his game status was listed as "Questionable" on Friday's practice participation report, there was optimism about a return once he hopped the flight to Colorado with his teammates. Dobson, at 6-3, will give New England some size in the passing game.

Fellow receiver Kenbrell Thompkins also made the trip, but has been deactivated.

The full list of Patriots inactives:

WR - Kenbrell Thompkins (Hip/Concussion)

LB - Steve Beauharnais (Illness)

DB - Justin Green (Healthy scratch)

TE - D.J. Williams (Healthy scratch)

OL - Chris Barker (Healthy scratch)

DT - Isaac Sopoaga (Healthy scratch)

The Broncos didn't have a single player listed as "Out" or "Questionable" on Friday's report. Former Patriots defensive back Marquice Cole, signed by the team last week, will not play.
