The team identified Cromartie's injury as rib-related but a source to the Daily News says it is a bruised lung. "Cromartie's timetable for recovery is about pain tolerance at this point," the source told the Daily News.

The 27-year-old returned two interceptions for 63 yards last weekend and was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.
