“We feel like, we’ll see how things go. We haven’t put up who is going to be up, who is going to be down [active for the game], those type of things. But he’s certainly a guy that if he gets out there, he’s got playmaking ability. He can help us. Again, every decision we make is based on what’s best for our team and what gives us the best chance to win. So he’s done a great job to this point.”
If he does get a chance to play, is Rogers ready to be on the big stage?
“The guy has, like I said, done everything we’ve asked him to do to this point. He’s been coming in every morning an hour before. He spends extra time with [Colts receivers] Coach Williams and Charlie has done a great job with him. Stays after. He’s steadily made progress,” the Indianapolis head coach said.
“He’s a bright kid, picks things up. If he gets out there, is it going to be perfect? No. Never is. Never is for anybody. 13-year vets make mistakes. But he’s certainly doing everything within his power to give himself a chance if he gets the opportunity to go out there and make something happen.”
What does Rogers think?
“[Being released by Buffalo] was just motivation. Me as a player, I know my talents and I know my abilities. I just know I had to fix a few things personally and I’m in the direction of fixing those things. This [Colts] organization has helped,” he said.
“I have a lot of confidence in my talents and abilities and it’s simple. I just got to go out and do the things the coaches taught me and the things that I’ve learned and everything will work itself out.”
