Stampeders receiver Eric Rogers out for Week 5 against Ottawa

Calgary receiver Eric Rogers won’t play in the nation’s capital on Thursday.

The Stampeders leading pass catcher, 201 yards and three touchdowns in three games all Calgary wins, was not on the team’s depth chart, second-year receiver Reggie Begelton is listed in his place.

And according to Stamps beat man Danny Austin, it’s Rogers’ surgically repaired knee that’s keeping him from playing.

Rogers tore his ACL early in training camp with the San Francisco 49ers in August 2016 and the team placed him on injured reserve for the season.

Rogers spent more than a year recovering and rehabbing the first major injury he’s suffered in his pro career. He was cleared to return to football activities by Dr. James Andrews who performed the surgery.

    Injuries are nothing new, and are no problem for this team:
    Rogers
    Wilson
    Williams
    Adeleke is still out…

    I don’t like the 3 imports on the O-line, but our depth allows us to make those ratio adjustments.

    Can’t argue with that, plug and play. That’s how Calgary does it.

  3. Doesn’t matter Ticats will win it all.

  4. Too bad, but not surprised to see Rogers out. He was interviewed at half time on his first game and indicated both knees were bothering him. His good knee was a little sore from over compensating for the bad one. Good receiver

    Calgary will be challenged tomorrow night. Ottawa is always a tough game, especially at TD .

    Looking forward to an entertaining game!

    Calgary doesn’t seem to really let injuries bother them, so not expecting (much) of a drop-off. But Ottawa isn’t going to be anyone’s punching bag this year either.
    As long as Harris gets some accuracy on his throws, something that has been a little sketchy lately (or is that just me seeing that?) this game will be decided late in the 4th quarter. Going to be a good one! (c’mon Ottawa… need to muddy the waters out West a little)

    Calgary always seems to be ok when injuries occur. Excellent drafting, scouting and coaching. Good on them. That said, I’m with Paul Bomber. go Ottawa!!

    It’s not going to be a problem, this team is just too strong. Another blow out Stamps win!! Stamps 50 – Ottawa 3
    The D will shut down Harris and BLM will pick apart that makeshift Ottawa defense. It will be over by half time.

    • I hope you’re right, but I doubt it

      Can’t see anyone blowing Ottawa out right now. The can maintain a lead with running and can play catch up with a good passing game and what you’d have to at least call an o-k D.
      But this is the Crazy Football League!

  10. Ottawa by 10

  11. May as well do em all:

    Ottawa by 10
    Edmonton by 15
    Bombers by 17

    This changes the fantasy lineup.

    See everybody, stick to the topic at hand. Wasn’t that nice!??

  14. Scottsask // July 11, 2018 at 9:49 pm //

    Yup, but let’s not be victims here.

  15. Damn- week 2 he looked like an all star again. Not a Stamps fan but I hope he is able to come back before Labour Day.
