Cleveland Browns cornerback Dimitri Patterson said Monday that he will miss a "couple" weeks with an ankle sprain, according to Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.
Patterson was hurt early in the Browns' 41-27 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. He would go on to play the rest of the half, but didn't play after that, as the ankle began swelling at halftime. He made two tackles, broke up a play and committed a pass interference penalty before leaving the game. Patterson, who is an eighth-year pro out of Tuskegee, was on crutches and in a boot on Monday, per Petrak.
Patterson has started four games for the Browns this season, while appearing in all five. He has racked up 25 tackles and has five pass deflections. Patterson's best year as a pro came with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010, when he started nine games and posted 52 tackles, four interceptions and a defensive touchdown.
