Carlos Rogers not optimistic about playing Sunday

By Rick Maese

Cornerback Carlos Rogers said Thursday that his hamstring injury could prevent him from playing Sunday at Tennessee.

"I don't think so, but I'm going to continue to try, going to continue to work through it," Rogers said. "But at the same time, it's a hamstring. You can't just go out there and play around with that, because you'll be out for a while if you do."

Rogers injured his right hamstring late in Monday's loss to Philadelphia. He was replaced in the lineup by Phillip Buchanon. Rogers also covers the slot in nickel situations, so the Redskins would have to do some shuffling if he can't play against the Titans.

Rogers said his hamstring actually feels improved over the past couple of days.
"Today I don't hardly feel it," he said.

Rogers has played in all nine of the team's games sp far. He has 47 tackles -- 33 of them unassisted -- nine pass defenses, one interception and one fumble recovery.

"I'm just going to make sure I'm right before I step out there on the field, period," he added. "For myself and this team."

Carlos Rogers not optimistic about playing Sunday

This means he's 'dropped' the chance to cover Randy Moss deep.

We also aren't increasing Dock's trade value for when we want to get rid of him in the offseason.

sick of hearing dockery doesn't fit the zone blocking scheme. the guy is a better pass blocker than lich and should be able to run block with his nfl experience alone. why can't these coaches adapt to the players we have on our roster and work with what we have. the 3-4 defense is a complete failure because of the personnel. getting an old QB that's no more than a back-up at this point in his career instead of the 2nd round pick going to pick an o-lineman, it sucks, not the redskins

we win some, we lose some, we win by a lot none of the time and we lose by a lot some of the time

i feel like antonio margarito, as Skins fans we just keep getting smacked around, punched in the face, embarrassed, clearly outclassed, but we keep coming back for more, just to get beat up again

i want to be champion, i want to be manny pacquiao

it's going to be a while

Here we go...what trade value did you think he had to begin with? He came back here because he got cut by an epic awful Buffalo team and now he can't start over a scrub like Lichtensteiger. And you think you're getting anything other than an open bag of gummy worms in return for Dock? UFB...

First JesusFreak Dockery never had any trade value and wont have any at the end of the season.

Second Hessone

You just became second behind peabrain with these comments, so like peabrain you are now on the pay no attention list.

Posted by: hessone | November 18, 2010 12:12 PM

First off, the players aren't very good. Remember DT11? Everyone said "there has to be a way to use him. coaches should be flexible." Now he's with a new team, new scheme. But he can't play. There was no way to "adapt" to DT11 and there's no way to adapt to some of the other slugs out there.

Second, the reason you hire Mike Shanahan and Jim Haslett is because you want to change what you're doing. You want a new offense, a new defense. You don't get that by "adapting to the players we have now" because those players were chosen for an offense and a defense that you don't want to run anymore.

You run the offense and the defense that you want to run and see which players can adapt. The ones that fit in, you keep. The other ones you cut/trade -- you don't keep running the old stuff for them because the players that you've added to the team were selected to fit into the new scheme.

There really is only one way to change what you're doing. Change.

but your point was he didn't fit the zone blocking scheme brown, not that the bills cut him. c'mon

"Complete failure"? I'm sure Dallas, Green Bay, and Chicago might disagree...

Hess, you sound silly dude. Saying something is a "complete failure" 9 games into the season (regardless of how ugly Monday night was) is like saying a pass play is incomplete while the QB is in step 4 of a 7 step drop. Can we agree that this looks bad now but is FAR from over?

It's not like anyone would notice if we just lined up with 10 on the D-side of the ball anyways -- at least not with the way they been playing lately, that is.

But if we really need to field 11, let put CR22 out there anyways and let the hamstrings be damned -- sort of like they did with little BB16 and his surgically repaired knee. I mean, do we really want to see any of other scrubs starting in his place?

But in deference to CR22 and his injury, the coaching staff could allow him to "pull a Haynesworth" whenever it suits -- as in drop coverage, sit down, stretch out, pour yourself a tall cold one, and enjoy the remainder of the play in the relative comfort of a nice easy chair that will be strategically placed somewhere 'tween the hash marks.

In addition to Lichtanass, I'd ask Phillip Buchanon is playing? All I've seen from him is missed assignments!

You complaint about Hessone laying out his disappointment without acknowledging it does indeed have some basis in fact.

The 'elite' traded for quarterback has not lifted the play of those about him.

The 4 new starters on the o-line haven't improved it.

Trading a pick for an injured player has proven to be more than a questionable move.

Not trading the big stud defensive lineman for picks looks silly after a game where 500 yards of offense against the defense were generated.

This year's redskin team looks suspiciously like last year's: and therein lies the disappointment.

And whereas this is FAR from over, we all secretly know where it'll end up having been there already.

I have never been optimistic about Carlos Rogers playing corner for the Redskins.

Posted by: Redskindan44 | November 18, 2010 1:58 PM | Report abuse

I had to laugh when I read that Rogers wasn't optimistic of playing this weekend. After last week would any Redskin be optimistic about playing?
