The Patriots have placed Josh Barrett, Leigh Bodden, Brett Lockett & Darryl Richard on IR and released Terrence Johnson #fb
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.
