Rodgers-Cromartie doesn't have ACL damage

There may be a lot of questions surrounding the Cardinals defense, but the health of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie shouldn’t be high among them.

“DRC” suffered no ACL damage according to the team’s website, and didn’t tear his MCL either.  He chipped a bone in the tibia of his left leg, but the Pro Bowler’s worst post-game fears were luckily not realized.  It’s unclear if he’ll need surgery.

Rodgers-Cromartie was hurt in the first half against the Saints, and the beleaguered Cardinals secondary didn’t have much of a chance after that.  (It looked like the Saints were essentially finding Bryant McFadden and throwing at him.

    Good news. You never want to see players get seriously injured.

    Two weeks before this he had to be carted off the field for a cut on his knee. I’m not so sure toughness is one of this fella’s strengths.

    That’s good news… should be fine. Potential shut-down corner for years to come…

    Does this mean the Sheldon Brown will now be in the Pro-Bowl?

    As a Saint fan I am very happy that he and Kurt Warner are going to be OK. I have heard nothing on Mr. Rolle. Hopefully he will be alright also.

    He is VERY tough. A chipped bone is very painful. The week against the Packers last game of the season was a non issue. The entire starting defense was coming out anyway. So to say he is not tough is just dumb. He got speared with a spiked and ripped the skin off his knee cap. He was able to play but the coaches pulled him. I think the Saint that plowed Warner was a cheap, unprofessional, assassination type shot. The Saints were afraid of Warner and the DL that hit Warner actually went around a OL and plowed Warner. That is shady man. Shady, cheap, football!
