FOXBOROUGH – Patriots' CB Alfonzo Dennard recently had a minor procedure to fix a problem with his meniscus, the Globe's Ben Volin has confirmed.

Dennard played nearly every snap in New England's Week 9 win over Pittsburgh, but showed up on the injury report with a knee injury last week, after the bye. He was limited on Thursday and Friday, then did not practice at all on Saturday, when the team announced that he would be out for the game with Carolina.

It is unclear at this point how long the Patriots will be without Dennard, but he is not expected to play this week against the Broncos.
