Do we know anything about his injury or how long he will be out?
I do not know the answer, sorry. That word should come out tomorrow. But I'm not sure if it even matters anymore. It seems that he will have a not so complimentary nickname soon. "Fragile man" is probably my favorite. The bottom line is he doesn't appear to be a player that can be counted on. Another way to put it is some would be surprised if he were able to be a regular contributor.
they said on the radio broadcast last night that it was a sprained knee and they weren't sure about the timetable for his return.
This guy just seems injury prone. It is no way that he can be counted on to be your starter at RT. The word fragile comes to mind. We need to sign a RT and soon. The offensive line did not look good at all against the Cardinals.
We should sign a free agent that is out there then.
It is so sad to hear about Rogers and his injury troubles. I really suspect this fellow may have weak connective tissue. If so, it is amazing he has come as far as he has but it would speak to a generalized tendency to injury.
I think we're real close to "bust" or "next"
I can't help but to agree with you.
But I also remember the Cowboys having a receiver several years ago with the same reputation. I think his name was Jimmy Smith. (ring a bell anyone)
The Cowboys gave up on him as being too fragile. When he finally got healthy, he went to the pro-bowl.
I hope that the Cowboys stick it out with Rogers. He could still be something special.
Jimmy Smith's injuries were of a different nature. He broke his leg in his first year and then had a ruptured appendix his second year. These are two quite unrelated injuries.
Rogers has had four shoulder surgeries and now has injured two different parts of his body within a week at TC.
Hate to say it but it looks as if he will deligated to the IR squad the rest of his career
If he's going to stay on the IR, his Cowboy career won't last long. Mind you, I don't think he's getting cut or anything just yer, but I do think he needs to get on the field and prove he can stay there.
To the surprise of many of you I am not a Dr. but I don't ever recall anyone with a sprained knee (which as I understand it is a slight tear in one of the ligaments) coming back back in less than 4 weeks. And that's only if its a slight tear in the MCL.
ACL's and PCL's are another story all together.
A couple of years ago R Ismail sprained his MCL and was out at least 4 weeks and we were all praying for that to be the best case scenario.
Guess we'll know after the MRI
He had a history at USC of milking his injuries. I don't know if he's fragile, or just unwilling to play through pain. Starting Pettiti ahead of him was Parcells way of showing him that he wasn't pleased that he let a non structural injury take him out of practice. And it was reported during the game that Parcells relayed it to Rogers that something had better come up in his X-Rays.
If that is true, the wrath of BP will rain down on him eventually. That could get ugly.
This was Pro Football Weekly's analysis of the pick during the draft.
My grandpa used to refer to the retread tires he put on his farm trucks as "maypops". When I got old enough to be curious, I asked him why.."maypop anytime" was his answer.
That's my new nickname for Jacob Rogers - Maypop.
I bet if it were up to Parcells, he'd waive him tomorrow. I really mean it.
Maybe that's too soon to give up on a second rounder, but if Parcells puts Rogers at second team for two days after merely getting his shoulder checked out, I bet this has made him lose all faith in the guy.
I think we need to see exactly what the injury is first...
Having said that, the draft report seems prophetic. He seems to have the talent and head, but as Bill would say, you have to see his heart. That hasn't been shown yet.
I guess BP either doesn't read those genius reports, or he doesn't put much stock in them...let's not forget that it was he who drafted Rogers ahead of guys who were expected to go before him.
Or maybe he thought Rogers was good value for the pick and/or that he could get through to him.
