Director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer said yesterday Rogers, who suffered an injury in the Oct. 28 loss to the New England Patriots, won't return until September or October.
Some aspects of this remind of a perfect storm that was 2006, where Adam Archuleta and a lack of reliable starting cornerbacks dramatically affected play calling and ultimately produced one of the worst defenses in the NFL. We've improved by losing Archuleta and gaining Smoot and LaRon Landry, but we've lost Sean Taylor and now, seemingly, Carlos Rogers (at least for a minute) and perhaps Shawn Springs. His future remains in doubt, though it shouldn't anymore! Make sure he is here or we will suffer the consequences. The article admits as much, pointing out that Rogers' extended injury could very well mean an extension of Springs' time in D.C.
And the good news:
McIntosh, who was injured in the Dec. 16 victory over the New York Giants, is expected back in July. These updates were contrary to what had been reported since the players were hurt...
...McIntosh's earlier return makes the signing of free agent linebacker Lance Briggs of the Chicago Bears less likely.
