Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie diagnosed with high ankle sprain


There was some concern in Denver on Wednesday afternoon when cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie went down with a leg injury. Rodgers-Cromartie was carted off of the field and unable to put any pressure on his injured left leg while heading to the locker room, but now it looks like the injury seemed much worse than it actually was.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN passed along the news:

High ankle sprains usually take four to six weeks to fully recover from.

With this time frame, it looks like Rodgers-Cromartie will be missing the entire preseason.

The good news for both Rodgers-Cromartie and the team is that he should be 100 percent healthy and ready to go when the team suits up for their Week One match up against the Baltimore Ravens.

This is a situation that could have been much worse, so the Broncos are lucky that the injury occurred when it did.
