CB Leigh Bodden dodges serious injury

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots cornerback Leigh Bodden has been held out of the team's last two padded practices after limping off the field, but his injury -- which NESN.com reported is to his knee -- is nothing serious.

Bodden was present at the team's walkthrough this morning and answered questions from reporters after the session.

"There are no concerns at all," said Bodden, who tied for the team-lead with five interceptions in 2009.

In Bodden's absence at practice last week, the Patriots had been working second-year man Darius Butler and rookie Devin McCourty as the top corners.
