The injury suffered by Cardinals cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie might not have only knocked him out of Saturday’s playoff loss to the Saints. It also might have knocked the second-year player out of action for most if not all of the 2010 offseason.
According to Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official web site, Rodgers-Cromartie believes that he tore ligaments in his left knee. The specific ligaments torn will determine the extent of his absence from offseason workouts.
If it’s a torn ACL, he’ll need full reconstructive surgery, and he’ll be out of action for four months or longer.
Urban reports that safety Antrel Rolle suffered a concussion, and that quarterback Kurt Warner has a bruised chest.
The entire team likely has a shattered ego after losing by 31 points, and it possibly will have a new defensive coordinator after giving up 90 in two games.
