Carlos Rogers sits out practice again

By Jason Reid

Cornerback Carlos Rogers (calf) sat out practice for the second consecutive day, stirring further doubt about his status for Sunday's season finale against the New York Giants at FedEx Field.

Rogers did not play during the second half of last week's overtime victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hamstring problems also sidelined Rogers for three games during the second half of the season.

Rogers, who could be an unrestricted free agent after the season, is not concerned that his injuries would deter the Redskins or other teams from investing heavily in him.

"I don't worry about that," he said. "That's something you can't do nothing about. You can't control hamstrings. I'm not an injury-prone person. If that was the case, it would kinda be different.

"...I think I got enough film to prove and show other general managers and coaches I can play. And not even others, just here with these guys, that I can play any position or any defense that they have me in."

Rogers expressed doubt about playing against the Giants.

"I hardly could walk without limping after the last game," Rogers said. "Today, I ran a little bit.

"I actually could run, so I got a few more days. Hopefully, I'll be able to play."

Regardless of Rogers's status, the Redskins' defense could receive a boost from outside linebacker Brian Orakpo (groin) and safety Reed Doughty (concussion), who sat out the previous game against Jacksonville at EverBank Field. Orakpo leads the Redskins with 8 ½ sacks. Free safety Kareem Moore was assigned to the season-ending injured reserve on Wednesday.

If we couldn't get Andrew Luck, our next best option is Ricky Stanzi. I'm of the opinion that Ricky is pro ready, Cam Newton is not. I also believe Ricky will be available in the early second round, which will allow Shanny to use the first round pick on other needs.
