WASHINGTON -- The Redskins say tight end Chris Cooley could return to action in a month after having an operation on his broken right ankle.

Cooley's surgery was Wednesday, two days after he was injured during the first half of the Redskins' 27-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Redskins originally feared the two-time Pro Bowler could be sidelined for two months and might have to go on injured reserve, missing the rest of the season. After Wednesday's operation, though, Cooley is expected to miss four weeks, barring any setbacks.

Cooley, who hasn't missed a game since the Redskins drafted him in the third round in 2004, has 29 catches for 332 yards and two touchdowns this season.
