The Redskins clarified newspaper and broadcast reports on June 30 that suggested rookie defensive back Carlos Rogers was being treated for a stress fracture in his ankle suffered during a recent workout at Auburn University.
Rogers, the team's 2005 first-round draft pick, has a first-degree sprain and a bone bruise in his ankle. He is expected to be in a boot and on crutches for two weeks and in a hard-bottom shoe for another two weeks. The injury occurred while Rogers was working out at Auburn prior to the Redskins' June mini-camp.
During his treatment an old stress fracture was revealed, but it is not the primary concern since it had not caused any previous problems.
The team's main concern is that Rogers' bone bruise not develop into a non-displaced fracture, which is why he is in a protective boot and on crutches.
The team expects Rogers to be limited in the early portion of training camp that opens August 1.
