Hog Heaven MVN - Most Valuable Network » Blog Archive » Carlos Rogers: “X” Factor, Revisited: "His knee injury in Week 8 against New England ended all that optimism. It was very serious, a torn ACL and MCL, and Rogers’ recovery is supposed to take 12 months.
That means that he will likely begin the season on the PUP list as a precautionary measure. Fans can expect Rogers to return to the lineup at some point in October, and add strength to the depth at CB.
The question is whether or not he will be a starter when he gets back. Carlos was on track in his development, but unlike Rocky McIntosh, his injury happened at a very critical time for his development. If he can’t come back and establish himself as a starter in October, Rogers may in effect lose his 2008 season to injury, even if he contributes with depth."
