Re: Rogers Might Play on Saturday

after last season the loss of these 2 was one of those fears everyone had for 08, would they be able to come back & play as well as they did before? It seems that they're on course to do so, definitely good news no matter how much they play in the preseason.

Re: Rogers Might Play on Saturday

I guess we just have to trust the coaches and trainers that he's healthy enough to consider giving him some playing time this soon. I'm a big believer in Carlos and I'm hopeful he comes back at full strength. We definitely need him healthy.

HAIL!!

If he says he is ready and the doc says he is ready, let him play for a series to 2.

Re: Rogers Might Play on Saturday

Well its not like he is going to step onto the field for the first time this season. I heard several weeks ago he was at practice and doing drills. He was also in covering some guys in practice so they have been testing his knee a little at a time. He did say several weeks ago after running some playes that his knee was feeling fine and he has not expereinced any swelling or disconfort in his knee.

Re: Rogers Might Play on Saturday

if the doctors say its OK, lets get him on the field, and find out what he can do. he can just as easily get hurt at practice. somewhere along the line, the skins are going to have to figure out what his role with the team will be

I like the way Rogers supports the run and before his injury I thought he was coming on. Even his bad hands seemed reborn. He is an important piece to our success but no need to rush him.

Redskins Staying Cautious With Rogers
By Gary Fitzgerald
Redskins.com
August 13, 2008

On Tuesday, Greg Blache hinted that Carlos Rogers might finally be healthy enough to play in a preseason game.

"He is in pretty good shape," Blache said. "Keep your eyes peeled on him. You might see him on the field."

Rogers is coming back from a knee ligament injury suffered last season. In recent weeks, he has increased his practice workload, participating in all of the individual drills and most 11-on-11 work.

Despite the hint of optimism from Blache, Rogers remains a question mark for Saturday's preseason game against the New York Jets.

The game is played at the Meadowlands, which has a FieldTurf surface. FieldTurf is a synthetic turf field that has a mixture of rubber and sand underneath it. It is regarded as a more safe playing surface.

But Rogers has worked primarily on grass fields since returning from his injury.

Coaches may not want Rogers to test his surgically repaired knee for the first time on an artificial surface.

"I'm preparing like I'm going to play, but I'm not sure if they're going to let me go," Rogers said. "If I do, it'll probably be for a series or two. Hopefully I can get out there.

"But it's a different surface, so I don't know if they really want to let me out there."

Added Jim Zorn: "If Carlos does get in, it will just be for a couple of plays. I'd like to wait. I'm not ruling him out, but it may be a pre-game [decision] where we get him ready at pre-game and then we shut him down when the game starts."

It's more likely that Rogers will play in the Aug. 23 preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers play at Bank of America Stadium, which has a grass surface.

It's remarkable that Rogers is even being considered to play in preseason, given the severity of his knee ligament injury.

Some thought the 6-0, 194-pound cornerback might open the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Rogers rehabbed all offseason and picked up the practice pace early in training camp.

Blache admitted it was hard to watch Rogers take a hit the first time he returned to practice.

"The first time he went down, I remember gasping," Blache said. "But he bounced right back up. And each time he goes down, he comes right back up. You don't worry about him anymore. He's ready."

Zorn said look quick......

I'm really glad Rocky and Rodgers are ready to go. They are both ahead of schedule, I hope this story has a nice start and finish.

These two must be elite healers.....

Re: Rogers Might Play on Saturday

Good to see them getting healthy. I hope we don't see TOO much of them this game, though. I'd wait until the next preseason game before they get some real action in.

I guess I'm just overly cautious about guys in the preseason, but I don't like seeing the starters for too long.

Yeah I don't think they'll play more than a series in Saturday's game, their workload will increase in later preseason games though.
