FOXBORO -- Second-year cornerback Alfonzo Dennard left the field on a cart during Tuesday's offseason training activity at Gillette Stadium. Dennard, who was a starter opposite Aqib Talib for much of 2012, was attended to by training staff for a few minutes before standing and limping to the cart, where he sat in the passenger seat. It was difficult to determine whether the injury was to his lower body or upper body, since it appeared trainers were looking at his shoulder area as well.
Meanwhile, tight end Jake Ballard also needed medical attention for what appeared to be an ankle issue. Ballard was re-taped on the sidelines and did not re-join practice after being attended to, but he stayed on the field.
Finally, running back Stevan Ridley seemed to aggravate a hamstring and was limited for the later portion of practice as well.
