Roundup: Patriots’ Bodden done for season

The cutdown deadline for NFL teams to reduce their rosters to 75 players passed at 4 p.m. ET and was surrounded by a flurry of activity. In no particular order (other than this is when I noticed them), here’s a look at some of the notable transactions around the league:

  • Patriots: In the biggest surprise of the day, CB Leigh Bodden was placed on the reserve/injured list. Bodden, who was being eased back into the mix after a knee injury but expected to eventually reclaim his starting spot, made his preseason debut against the Rams. He was listed by the team as having a shoulder injury. The Patriots also put S Josh Barrett, DB Brett Lockett and DL Darryl Richard on the reserve/injured list and waived DB Terrence Johnson.
  • Vikings: As expected, placed WR Sidney Rice on the reserve/PUP list. Waived WR Marko Mitchell and OT Bill Noethlich and put LB J Leman on waived/injured list.
  • Buccaneers: Waived RB Derrick Ward, WR Terrence Nunn and LB Jon Alston. Ward fell behind Kareem Huggins as the primary backup to starter Cadillac Williams.
  • Jets: Waived QB Kevin O’Connell. Jets Coach Rex Ryan said Kellen Clemens was going to make the team unless another team could have given him an opportunity as a starter.
  • Giants: Placed WR Sinorice Moss, QB Jim Sorgi and rookie LB Adrian Tracy on injured reserve. Placed OL Kevin Boothe on the reserve/PUP list and waived rookie WR Nyan Boateng.
  • Packers: Placed CB Al Harris, S Atari Bigby and RB James Starks on the reserve/PUP list. Harris had been on the active/PUP list throughout the preseason after offseason knee surgery but didn’t pass a recent physical. Bigby was expected to miss four to eight weeks after ankle surgery.
  • Chiefs: Released WR Lance Long.
  • Jaguars: Placed DT D’Anthony Smith and C John Estes on injured reserve and waived C Cecil Newton, DE Julius Williams, CB Josh Gordy and WR Roren Thomas.
  • Falcons: Reached injury settlement with Matt Giordano and waived DT Thomas Johnson.
  • Lions: Traded OL Tyler Polumbus to the Seahawks and placed CB Jack Williams on the reserve/PUP list.
  • Browns: Waived DB John Bowie, WR Taurus Johnson, DB Gerard Lawson and OL John Malecki and placed DL Titus Adams on injured reserve.
  • Titans: Waived five players: P Ricky Schmitt, CB Pete Ittersagen, LB Mike Rivera (injured), DT Kareem Brown (injured) and WR Bobby Sewall.
  • Chargers: Waived RB Marcus Mason,WR Gary Banks, G Lee Grimes and LB Darry Beckwith. Also announced LB Donald Butler, who injured his Achilles during training camp, was placed on reserve/injured list. Signed P Glenn Pakulak.

  • Steelers: Placed G Chris Scott on the reserve/PUP list and waived LB Brandon Renkart, CB David Pittman, FB Dwayne Wright and OG Adrian Jones.
  • Bears: Waived FB Will Ta’ufo’ou.
  • Redskins: Waived LB Hall Davis, LS James Dearth, S  Lendy Holmes and OL Edwin Williams. Placed WR Malcolm Kelly, who has been slowed by an ailing hamstring throughout the preseason, on the reserve/injured list.
  • Dolphins: Placed OT Nate Garner on the reserve/injured list and placed DE Phillip Merling on the reserve/non-football injury list.
  • Cowboys: Waived S Patrick Watkins, placed TE John Phillips on the reserve/injured list and put LB Stephen Hodge on the reserve/PUP list
