Rogers agreed to a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Miami was in need of wideout depth after both Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson recently opted out of the 2020 season, so Rogers' addition should at least help address the absence of Wilson at slot receiver. Rogers, who can also contribute as a return man, spent the past four seasons with the Colts, suiting up in 53 career contests and logging 111 receptions for 1,221 yards and five touchdowns. Though Rogers' signing suggests he's healthy again after he fractured his knee in early December, he'll still likely have to beat out either or both of Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford to earn a regular spot in the Dolphins' three-receiver formations.
The Colts intend to place Rogers (knee) on injured reserve, spelling an end to his season, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports. Indianapolis may not announce a corresponding roster move for another day or two, but Rogers' impending shutdown implies the follow-up tests he underwent Monday revealed that he fractured his knee in the Week 13 loss to the Titans. Rogers only contributed 16 receptions for 179 yards and two touchdowns across 28 targets in 12 games this season, but his absence nonetheless hurts with the Colts already having lost several other pass-catching options to injury. Fortunately for Indianapolis, the potential returns of receivers T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) as soon as Week 14 could help soften the loss of Rogers.
Rogers is likely to be shut down for the season after initial tests revealed that he fractured his knee in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Titans, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per the report, the wideout will undergo further testing Monday as the Colts look to confirm the injury, but the early returns don't offer much hope that he'll be able to play again in 2019. With Rogers set to miss time, the Colts' already banged-up pass-catching corps is further taxed, though it's possible that T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) could return to action in Week 14 against the Buccaneers.
Rogers was forced out of Sunday's game against the Titans due to a knee injury, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. With Rogers out of Sunday's game, Zach Pascal, Marcus Johnson and Ashton Dulin remain on hand to handle the team's Week 13 wide receiver duties.
Rogers caught his only target for 11 yards during Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Texans. Rogers once again played a healthy role in Indianapolis' offense, logging 61 percent of snaps, but he hasn't been to translate that opportunity into notable fantasy production. The 25-year-old also wasn't able to make an impact in the punt return game during Thursday's loss, with no official punt returns.
