Redskins cornerback Carlos Rogers declared himself out for Sunday’s game at Indianapolis because of a broken right thumb. Rogers was injured against Tennessee and had surgery on Monday to insert three screws.

Rogers said he expects to play Nov. 5 against Dallas.

The Redskins can’t stay healthy in the secondary. As soon as Shawn Springs gets to full strength, they lose Rogers. Luckily, new addition Troy Vincent is expected to make his Redskins debut, and he could start at corner alongside Springs and Kenny Wright if the Colts go with three receivers.

Also not practicing were Lemar Marshall (ankle), Marcus Washington (rest), Derrick Dockery (hip) and Springs.

Defensive tackles Cornelius Griffin (hip) and Joe Salave’a (calf) and receiver David Patten (thigh) returned to practice. They all missed the Tennessee game.
