AFC West: Justin Rogers

Evening news and notes

February, 8, 2010
Kansas City cut linebackers Weston Dacus and Justin Rogers on Monday.

Dacus was on the injured reserve all of the 2009 season after playing in eight games as a rookie free agent in 2008. Rogers played in one game in 2009.

Denver signed running back Bruce Hall on Monday. He spent most of the past two seasons on Buffalo’s practice squad and was with new Denver running backs coach Eric Studesville. Hall also played for two seasons at Mississippi.

Oakland announced the hiring of former Kansas City defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast. He will work with the secondary. ESPN’s John Clayton reported Pendergast's hiring in Oakland on Saturday.

Chiefs make roster moves

December, 27, 2009
The Chiefs put safety DaJuan Morgan and linebacker Justin Rogers on the injured reserve list. Morgan, a promising second-year player, has a chest injury. Rogers has a thigh injury.

The team promoted defensive tackle Derek Lokey and safety Ricky Price from the practice squad. Lokey is from Texas and Price is from Oklahoma State. Both Lokey and Price may have a chance to play in the final week of the season and show they belong in Kansas City in 2010.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ battered offensive line took another hit when guard Mike Goff was put on the injured reserve.

Goff has a shoulder injury. The first-year Chief had a streak of 113 straight starts broken Sunday at Jacksonville. Andy Alleman played for Goff against Jacksonville and likely will stay in the role moving forward.

To replace Goff on the roster, Kansas City signed linebacker Justin Rogers. He was on the team for a short period earlier in the season.

To help their battered offensive line, the Chiefs signed tackle Barry Richardson off their practice squad. Richardson was a Kansas City draft pick in 2008. The team cut linebacker Justin Rogers to make room for Richardson. Rogers was signed earlier this week.

The team needed Richardson because left tackle Branden Albert did not make the trip to Washington for Sunday’s game. Albert didn’t practice all week with an ankle injury.

Here’s a report that does not put much stock into Baltimore pursuing Kansas City receiver Dwayne Bowe for draft picks. The trade deadline is Tuesday.

San Diego linebacker Stephen Cooper is listed as questionable to play Monday night against Denver. He practiced on a limited basis Saturday with a knee injury. Meanwhile, San Diego linebacker Shawne Merriman expects to be much more effective against the Broncos than he has been earlier this season. Merriman is still recovering from a knee surgery he had 13 months ago.

Oakland coach Tom Cable said the Raiders are looking into possible trade opportunities for receiver Javon Walker, who said he wouldn’t be adverse to a deal. It’s highly unlikely the Raiders would get anything of substance in return for Walker, who has been injury prone and who has played just four snaps this season.

Denver running back Correll Buckhalter was practicing some Wednesday. He missed the New England game with a high ankle sprain. Buckhalter will likely be monitored throughout the week as Denver prepares to play at San Diego on Monday night.

Oakland receiver Chaz Schilens practiced Wednesday. He may be on track to play for the first time this season Sunday against Philadelphia. The promising Schilens has been out for eight weeks with a broken foot. He’d help an anemic Oakland offense.

The Chargers still have 1,500 tickets to sell for Monday night’s game by Friday to avoid a local television blackout.

The Chiefs signed linebacker Justin Rogers. He played for Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli in New England.

According to ESPN’s Stats & Information, the 0-5 Chiefs will be the sixth winless team the Redskins play this season.
