The Patriots are practicing on the game field inside Gillette Stadium, with the sun shining overhead and snow melting around them on the sidelines.

For the third straight day, CB Ras-I Dowling (hip) and LB Dane Fletcher (thumb) were missing from the media-access portion of practice.

So Leigh Bodden's release has little to do with Dowling's health in the short term, as it is highly doubtful the rookie will play this week in Pittsburgh.
