Rogers recorded two catches on two targets for four yards in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans.
Rogers recorded multiple receptions for the third time in his last five games. However, he did very little with the opportunity, and he has failed to top 20 yards in four of those same five contests.

He'll become a free agent at the conclusion of the Titans' postseason run, and he's likely to fill a similar depth role wherever he finds his next opportunity.... See More ... See Less
