Ankle injury expected to keep Colts' Dorsett out 4-6 weeks

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Colts receiver Phillip Dorsett said Monday he expects to miss four to six weeks with a fractured left ankle.

The rookie was waiting on an MRI to determine if there were any additional complications.

Dorsett, Indy's first-round draft pick, was injured midway through the second quarter of Sunday's game against New Orleans when he was hit low by one defender and then was awkwardly bent backward by another.

Dorsett said he felt the bone crack before he went down. He limped straight to the locker room, did not return and was on crutches, wearing a boot over his left foot after the game.

He has 11 catches for 167 yards and one TD this season.

Dorsett believes he can return this season.
