Colts Place WR Chester Rogers On Injured Reserve With Knee Fracture



Colts HC Frank Reich announced Monday that they’re placing WR Chester Rogers on injured reserve. 

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that initial tests revealed that Colts WR Chester Rogers suffered a likely season-ending knee fracture on Sunday.

According to Schefter, Rogers is undergoing more tests, but the expectation is that his 2019 season is over. 

You can expect the Colts to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

The Colts’ receiving corps is very limited due to some injuries to key players such as T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess.

Rogers, 25, signed on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Grambling State back in May of 2016. He finished his three-year contract before returning to the Colts on a one-year, restricted tender this past offseason. 

Rogers is in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2020. 

In 2019, Rogers appeared in 11 games for the Colts and caught 16 passes for 179 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
