"He has done it before, so I am not overly (concerned)," Broncos coach John Fox told USA Today after practice. "We will just get him healthy and get him back out there."
According to Steven O'Reilly, a Florida-based golf professional who plays flag football with Rodgers-Cromartie in the offseason, DRC will be out approximately four-to-five weeks.
Tweeted O'Reilly on Wednesday afternoon:
Texted with DRC, he's in good spirits, said high ankle sprain, about a month to 5 weeks. Nothing too major

Right now, a realistic date to expect DRC's return by could be the team's Week 2 match on the road against the New York Giants. In DRC's absence, Chris Harris Jr. is expected to play across from Champ Bailey.
