Jimbo Fisher updates status of WR Kendrick Rogers after he was seen wearing boot at practice
Senior wide receiver Kendrick Rogers missed practice on Saturday because of an injury.
Rogers was seen wearing a walking boot, and Jimbo Fisher was asked about his status following Saturday’s practice.
“He had a boot on. He had a lower leg injury. He’s got some swelling. They’ve (trainers) got him in a boot for a while. He should be all right,” Fisher noted.
“I’m not a doctor, but I don’t think it’s anything that’s going to be long-standing. He got tweaked a little bit. He got some swelling. We’ve had a couple of guys get that already. That’s part of camp.”
Fisher’s attitude towards Rogers’ injury was positive; so, he shouldn’t be out too long.
The 6-4, 205-pound pass catcher was a big piece to Texas A&M’s receiving corps in 2018. He recorded 27 catches for 336 yards and five touchdowns. Rogers made clutch catches throughout last season. His one-handed touchdown grab and the two-point conversions against LSU are catches fans will never forget. So, it’s important for Rogers to be healthy for Kellen Mond and the Aggies offense.
