At this time last year, San Diego cornerback Antonio Cromartie jumped into the national spotlight and onto the national stage when he intercepted Colts quarterback Peyton Manning three times in one game, including one for-the-ages interception.
Now Cromartie will get the chance to battle Manning again Sunday night, and those close to Cromartie believe that he is healthy for the first time since San Diego’s opening game.
Throughout this season, Cromartie had a hip problem in which his pelvis was rotated out of position and he had no explosion when he moved to his right. Now, for the first time, Cromartie has told some of his friends that he believes this is the healthiest he has been — and it comes at a great time.
Once again the Chargers get the Colts, and Cromartie gets a crack at Manning, who wants his own chance at revenge. Cromartie can only hope that this year’s game goes as well as last year’s.
