Practice squad: Victorian in, Williams out

In addition to formally announcing the release of cornerback Leigh Bodden on Friday afternoon, the Patriots made a minor swap on the practice squad, re-signing defensive back Josh Victorian and releasing cornerback Malcolm Williams.

Victorian had been released Tuesday to add Williams, a seventh-round draft pick of the Patriots in this year's draft, to the practice squad. The Patriots still have Bodden's roster spot on the 53-man active roster, which could be used to activate a player off the reserve/PUP list (or filled in another move before Sunday's game against the Steelers).
