Report: Dennard held out for injury

Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard is being held out of training camp because of an unidentified injury, according to The Boston Herald.

Dennard, who has been held out of team drills the past three sessions, has shown no signs of injury during camp. Some were wondering if he was being held out because the Patriots were bracing for his potential discipline stemming from his off-the-field legal issues.

The second-year cornerback could be facing a suspension from the NFL after being charged with DUI in Lincoln, Neb. Dennard is also scheduled for a probation revocation hearing as a result of the DUI charge.

Dennard suffered through an injury-plagued season last year, missing the first four games because of a hamstring strain
