The Denver Broncos saw Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie carted off the field at practice on Wednesday with a left leg injury. It was later reported that he suffered a high ankle sprain, but he could not put any weight on his left leg and there is no timeline for his return yet. Rodgers-Cromartie was hoping to revive his career in Denver after two tough years with the Eagles, but that may be put on hold if he misses a big chunk of training camp.

The NFL has decided that the Pro Bowl will no longer pit the best of the AFC against the best of the NFC. Instead, two team captains will be chosen, and they will draft two teams for the game.
