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