Leigh Bodden, Three Others Placed On IR To Meet Roster Requirements

According to the Patriots Twitter account, the team has met its roster requirement by placing four on the disabled list, including cornerback Leigh Bodden, and cutting one:

Bodden is the big loss in all of this. Bodden, who has been battling a knee injury, was expected to be the starting right cornerback this season. Instead, the Patriots will have to make due without him. Devin McCourty, the team's No. 1 draft pick this year, will be expected to pick up a lot of slack, among other youngsters.
