Found August 01, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Denver Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie had to be carted off the practice field yesterday after he suffered a left ankle sprain. After being evaluated by the team’s training staff, the Broncos announced that Rodgers-Cromartie is expected to miss two to three weeks of action as a result of the injury, according to Caitlin Swieca of The Denver Post. Rodgers-Cromartie suffered the injury during one-on-one drills. He went up against rookie wide receiver Quincy McDuffie and landed awkwardly on his left leg. While head coach John Fox admitted he’s concerned his cornerback has to miss time, he’s confident that Rodgers-Cromartie will be able to return in time to suit up for Denver’s regular season opener against the Baltimore Ravens. "He's done it before, so I'm not overly (concerned)," Broncos coach John Fox said. "But any time you miss time, I'm concerned." The Broncos signed Rodgers-Cromartie as a free agent after parting ways with the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason, inking the veteran corner to a one-year, $5 million deal. Beyond Rodgers-Cromartie, the Broncos were also without defensive tackle Sylvester Williams and tight end Jacob Tamme yesterday. Williams continues to recover from a knee injury he suffered on Monday, while Fox said Tamme is dealing with a right quad ailment. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
