Eric Rogers out for season with torn ACL

Aug 5, 2016 at 10:14 AM--


San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Eric Rogers, who was signed from the CFL this offseason, suffered a torn ACL during practice yesterday and will be out for the season. The information came from head coach Chip Kelly on Friday.

There were high hopes for Rogers, who at 6-foot-3 and 210 lbs, had good size for a receiver lining up on the outside. The injury is the first significant one since training camp practices started this past weekend.


Rogers visited with the Eagles in December when Kelly was still with his former team. Kelly reportedly called Rogers within hours of learning that he would become the 49ers' new coach. He was trying to recruit him. "He basically told me, 'I guess I had to come to Cali to sign you since you're a Cali boy,'" said Rogers in January. Kelly also stated that Rogers was the first player that he wanted to sign at his new job.

Rogers spent time with the Dallas Cowboys prior to the 2013 season, but failed to make the final roster. He spent time in the Arena Football League before moving on to the CFL. Last year, Rogers caught 87 passes for 1,448 yards and 10 touchdowns with the Calgary Stampeders.

Rogers had 13 offers from NFL teams before ultimately deciding to join the 49ers. Kelly stated that the team would likely bring in another receiver to replace Rogers on the team's 90-man roster.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the team's 31-13 victory over the New York Jets. While the Niners won the game, they walked away with several losses on the injury front. Shanahan said that the 49ers fear a high-ankle sprain for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. That would likely force him to miss time. Shanahan didn't want to speculate on how much time that would be.
