NEW ORLEANS (AP) -Saints cornerback Mike McKenzie sprained his right knee Sunday while attempting to recover a fumble on a wild play in the first quarter of New Orleans' home game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
McKenzie walked on his own to the locker room for treatment, but Saints officials said his return was doubtful.
McKenzie hurt himself trying to recover a fumble that ended in an Eagles touchdown.
Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb found open field while running a bootleg on third-and short and gained 40 yards before Saints safety Josh Bullocks punched the ball out of McNabb's grasp at the 24-yard line. McKenzie was the first to get to the loose ball and attempted to fall on it at the 2, but the ball squirted into the end zone, where receiver Kevin Curtis recovered for Philadelphia.
McKenzie quickly got up to give chase when the ball got away, but then went down on both knees in the back of the end zone, remaining there for several minutes before walking gingerly to the sideline.
