Cards expect 'DRC' back relatively soon

The Cardinals' poor tackling in the playoffs could have proved devastating for Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Instead, it proved only costly.

Rodgers-Cromartie, injured against the Saints after Devery Henderson broke into the Arizona secondary for a 16-yard gain, expects to miss three or four months after undergoing knee surgery. That is the latest from Rodgers-Cromartie through Darren Urban of azcardinals.com.

The timetable means Rodgers-Cromartie should be on the field before the team gathers for training camp.

Rodgers-Cromartie said he "shredded" his MCL in addition to injuring his tibia.
