Carlos Rogers hopes sore calf won't keep him out of season finale

By Rick Maese

The Redskins' defense entered Sunday's game battered and bruised, so it didn't help matters when Carlos Rogers left the game late in the first half with a sore calf.

The Redskins cornerback did not return but said he hopes to play in next Sunday's season finale against the New York Giants.

"It's alright, right now," Rogers said following Sunday's 20-17 win at Jacksonville. "It's kind of straining a little bit. I know from the previous one I had last training camp, if I kept going, I was going to pop. And I didn't want to do that."

Rogers was enjoying a strong first half before suffering the injury. On the third play of the Jaguars' first possession, he intercepted David Garrard and returned the ball 38 yards to the Jacksonville 18-yard line. The interception set up the Redskins' first touchdown of the game. It was Rogers's second interception of the season and the first since Week 2 against Houston.

The Redskins also briefly lost nose tackle Anthony Bryant due to an elbow injury, but he returned in the fourth quarter and was able to finish the game.

Cosign, scamp. I like Buchanon, and want to keep him. But I also like Los. As long as his demands are not too high, we should resign him. One less hole to fill.

I corners are okay. Their problem is that they get no help anywhere else. Our line gets no pressure, our FS's don't help anyone in coverage and neither do our LB's.
Our CB's will look like world beaters if QB's have less than 7 seconds to throw the ball and safeties cover over the top like they're supposed to.

Moe, agree with your take on CBs from a few post back. Threw out PP because p1funk mentioned about letting Los walk, which I think would be a mistake. Would rather see Hall walk before Los, but thats just me.

Jason Reid,

Why arent you talking about how McNabb is being treated, or following Jason Campbel?? You seem to be more interested in how the Redskins coaching staff and management treat QB's than anything else. Why arent you blasting the staff for not kissing up to McNabb??? What happend to you? Last year, it was all about Campbell.. now.. you strayed off track man. Show your hatred of everything that isnt black, like you usually do.
