Carlos Rogers on playing Sunday: 'I don't know right now.'

By Jason Reid

Apparently, cold weather is not good for rehabbing sore hamstrings.

"Nah, man, not good at all," cornerback Carlos Rogers said Wednesday before practice at Redskins Park. "But I'm trying."

Slowed by his hamstring problems the past few weeks, Rogers hopes to return to the lineup Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Fed Ex Field, "but I don't know right now," he said. "They're getting better, but this weather don't help.

"I'm doing some running, doing the little things I can do, but it's just got to heal. You just have to keep working at it and see what happens. You want to play, but I don't know what's gonna happen [this week]. I'm just not sure yet."

In the offseason, Rogers was among many restricted free agents, under the terms of an uncapped season, who would have been unrestricted otherwise. He expressed frustration about receiving a one-year tender offer of about $1.54 million instead of the lucrative multiyear extension he was hoping to receive.

In a moment of refreshing candor, Rogers acknowledged that, on some level, his contract situation could be a small factor in whether he would attempt to play through a significant injury, "but I'm not gonna be able to help the team if I'm hurt," he said. "If I can't run [because of his hamstrings], I can't cover nobody."

Continuing to read thru the comments here and listening to 980 and 106.7 makes me want to stick a spork in my eye. So I did and I feel better.

p1funk-

The money that AH has already been given is gone. The Skins going after 800k of 36 mil is laughable...AH probably spends that in a week.

They could have cut him, but by deactivating him for the final 4 games they can now either trade him or cut him in the offseason. He's "played" his last game (thankfully) in the BnG.

Shanahan was 1 for 2 with his gambling on inherited players. He succeeded with Portis but CP's body gave out and he rolled the dice on a low risk (4th-6th RD pick at the deadline) but high reward (all pro DE/NT) with Haynesworth. This is on Haynesworth but is ultimately on Snyder and Vinny for ignoring all 92 red flags associated with this tub of goo.

Boy, you must be a lousy leader. What would you do with a staff of more than a few people? You can't please them all, so bending over backwards to give them what they want - when it is opposed to what you want - is ridiculous. MS and company have to do what they think is best, not cater to one a**clown whose version of working out is lifting beers at a bar in Reston.

You act as if Albert couldn't have been a good NT. I say baloney to that. He never tried, so he'll never know. Personally, I can't a imagine a worse sight for a C than AH standing directly over the top of him.

1. I don't trust anyone that would diss Pearl Jam.

2. I'm not of the belief that everything that happened was part of Management's effort to "hide" a bad team. Truth is everyone knew this team would be at best average this year, including management. After all, they saw the film from last year. Difference is, they aren't going to declare it publicly.

3. ...if you believe they knew they weren't a very strong team, then there isn't a need to blow up the AH thing..and who blew it up anyways? The Redskins?!? LOL, how about the media? I find it ironic that a media member is accusing the Redskins of fanning flames to cover up bad football, as if that would work anyways. They go on about this stuff, not anyone else.

4. With a motivated AH, this team would have been better, no doubt...but still not a playoff team. This is a cultural and personnel overhaul, whether it is said aloud or not.

Posted by: shaunsherman12 | December 8, 2010 2:39 PM | Report abuse

Also, AH's game has been to get upfield and sack the quarterback. Do you mean to say he's spent his career eating space and defending the run? That's why Carter's numbers are so much better?


I am saying that. The dude was double teamed every snap I saw him play in our jersey. Taking up 2 Olineman is something AC never did. Thats one of their primary dif. AC straight edge rusher.

As far as coachability. You are correct and then some. AC works for others, AH works for himself.

Posted by: Stu27 | December 8, 2010 2:41 PM | Report abuse

AH is 100% responsible for this mess. I don't see other players throwing fits and refusing to do what they're asked.

As for the signing bonus, forget it. They won't recover a dime, though that isn't their priority here.

Last thing: Redskins beat the Bucs as the team rallies behind the coach. Call it 17-10.

At this point in the season start all of the young guys. F-it. There is nothing left to lose, so see what you got.

James Davis, Capers, Cooke, montgomery, Banks, Austin the whole bunch of 'em.

I think James Davis looked good against the Giants, but his carries were limited b/c we had to throw a billion times.

God in heaven, what do you do for a living? I'll spell it out for you: talent doesn't mean d*ck if the player gives half-a** effort.

Pabrian, you keep clinging to the notion that the Redskins have had so many pieces in place, and that current management has destroyed them. PLEASE. I've hear this argument for years now from folks that just can't accept the fact that the Skins are outmatched from a personnel standpoint consistently; they all want to believe that a single element, be it the owner, a coach, or a manager is the thing holding the roster back from greatness.

This team lacks talent, and in this case the talented player you write about is a cancer. They will be better in the long term by kicking bums like this out of town, and setting greater expectations for players that will stay here along with future players they pick up or draft.

Sorry it isn't a quick fix, but this all has to start with some accountibility from the players. They've taken the money and run for years, and that junk is over now.

I love this...pabrian has it right. Every successful leader has catered his ENTIRE operation to ONE person. That's the way to do it. When coming up with a scheme, a coach should ALWAYS go to the player that works the least, expects the most, and has no interest in the team concept and build around that guy. It's what made Oakland great when they had Randy Moss and it's what won the Vikings a title with Brett Favre. Oh wait...

Seriously...how peabrain can get out of bed and muster the brainpower to turn on a computer and manipulate the keys on a keyboard to say this stuff is the 9th wonder of the world...

There is a LOT of space between utilizing talent and catering to one player. But, you can't hear me from you HIGH HORSE. You must be a REAL GENIUS. Your right though look at the success of Josh mcDaniels he didn't bend to Cutler or Marshall.

I see some of Alan's points, though I disagree. Pea just can't accept that our culture within the team has stunk for years, and players of the AH sort must be through here to move forward.

There were 2 little hear-say injury reports from last year that I heard he toughed-out:

1. After practice one day he accidentally bit a jaw breaker thinking it was a gum ball. He had a severly sore jaw for about 4 days!

2. He got crabs in his eye brows from eating out a stripper. Those crab bites can be BRUTAL, poor Albert!

Another strawman. Geez, don't you guys stay on topic? I guess I wouldn't either if my thought process was so misguided.

If they are going to change schemes, this is the year to do it. They aren't good, so nothing is truly effected if they stink it up while adjusting, and the coaching staff can figure out who can adjust and who must go.

Again, you wouldn't agree with this because you have the "we are just a player away" mentality that has plagued this franchise for over 10 years.

Nothing personal but your continually defense of the the indefensible is beyond laughable at this point.

Posted by: Diesel44 | December 8, 2010 3:05 PM | Report abuse

It is very simple to beat these Redskins; run the ball. The only reason the Giants didn't score 50 was because they ran Jacobs only 8 times and decided to let Eli throw it a few times.

Yeah, Albert needed to go but Rogers is wrong when on 3rd and short the Giants would run for four and five yards. They need someone occupying multiple blockers. The only way this run defense gets better is if Landry plays and then we're talking four yards a carry as opposed to five. The only game the 'skins have a chance against is the Cowboys and that's if Garret gets too cute to stick with the run.

And if you think this team is going in the right direction when it goes 1 and 8 or 2 and 9 in its last 9 games then I got a nice timeshare on the moon you may want to be a part of.

Moreover, who do you think will take to fall for this? The players who keep defending their coach will get pink slips at the end of the year from the same coach. They want to be back here because there is finally a culture of accountability. Unfortunately for them it will have to be a new batch of suckers with better talent to by in.
