Rogers attending to family matter

Associated Press

BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl nose tackle Shaun Rogers missed his second straight day of practice due to a non-injury related absence.

Rogers has been excused from the team to attend to a family matter. The team expects him to return on Friday and to play in Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.

The 6-foot-4, 350-pounder is Cleveland's top defensive lineman. He was credited with four tackles last week in a win over Buffalo. One week earlier, Rogers blocked a field-goal attempt and extra-point kick as the Browns forced the Bengals into overtime before losing.
