Charles Rogers Slow to Recover...

Postby Canacuna » Sun Jan 25, 2004 10:49 pm

When he first broke his collar bone, it was initially reported he would mix about six weeks. Now it's looking like he will barely be making it to the first off-season workouts...

During the high school football season, a few of the guys broke their collar bones and they were back in about two months. What's going on with Rogers? Did he have any injury problems in college?

To the best of my increasingly feeble memory I can recall no injuries while at MSU. His problems were the same that he had shown in the short time he played this season; he doesn't run routes well and drops a lot of passes. He also has had problems with the physical play in the NFL and has been slowed off the line of scrimmage. I wouldn't think that his collarbone injury will hold him back any, nobody heals that slowly. What I would be on the watch for is his attitude. At MSU he seemed dis-interested in doing the grunt work of a WR and seemed to take plays off.
That said, I think he still has the potential to be a stud.

Yeah,what DUKE said.I'm not 100% sure but I think that's what kept him from coming back this season,the hammy,not the clavicle.

I can't remember anything about a hamstring injury with Rogers, either in college or this season. He missed time in the preseason with a dislocated finger and went on IR due to a slow recovery from his clavicle. It is a concern that he takes so long to heal, and hopefully this won't be a sign of things to come.

Yeah,you're right Mooch,I don't know who I was thinking of,Charlie did heal slow and eventually was put on IR because of the slow healing which made him lose so much conditioning in his upper body.

I had this guy last year and was happy to get him. I thought he was the talent of the draft. I was really frustrated that he got injured and never returned. I thought it would only be a few weeks! Anyway, I don't remember injuries from college on this guy. Especially not his last two years.

My take is that he was so much bigger and faster in college that most DB's played off of him. That aint how it is done in the NFL where DB's love putting the smack down on rookie WR's. Also, I think Detroit overused him because the team sucked. Combine the two and you have injuries.

He has the stuff to be a stud in '04. I was happy with his #'s while he was healthy. I am just relying on him to be my second or third receiver. They need a running game to protect him and to get DB's to consider another option as compared to T-ing off on him. If not he could just keep getting injured.
