Cornerback Carlos Rogers, who many at Redskin Park thought wouldn’t be back until late September or early October, cleared another hurdle this morning when he was able to practice for a second straight day after getting back on the field for two-a-days on Tuesday.
“I expected to have some pain when I woke up this morning because Rocky [McIntosh] on his first day back [after knee surgery], but I had no pain, no swelling,” Rogers said, grinning. “I feel good.”
Coach Jim Zorn was impressed with the fourth-year man’s resiliency, noting that Rogers had bounced up immediately after going down while covering Rock Cartwright on a deep ball on Tuesday afternoon and how he had “very sudden” explosion on a pattern this morning.
Elsewhere on the injury front:
- Running back Ladell Betts rested his bruised thigh which has tightened up his quadricep
- Rookie receiver Malcolm Kelly tested his ailing hamstring in some team drills, as Zorn had predicted on Tuesday.
