Andy Reid said corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a high ankle sprain on a second-half kickoff return Sunday, but Rodgers-Cromartie told reporters outside NovaCare today that he also suffered torn ankle ligaments.

DRC, who was wearing a white walking boot, wouldn't venture a guess on how long he might be sidelined. Several weeks would seem likely.

"As I went through the wedge, somebody rolled on it," Rodgers-Cromartie said. 

He said he would only wear the boot "for a few days, until I start walking better."

Rodgers-Cromartie notched his first sack as an Eagle Sunday and was probably playing his best game of the season when he was injured. This was right after looking lost in last Monday's loss to the Bears.

'It's very disappointing, coming off a game like that, basically starting to feel better about the plays," he said.
