Draft Scout News
09/29/14 - WR Da'Rick Rogers was waived from the 53-man roster after he was arrested for DUI early Monday morning on the IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis) campus. Rogers has been a game-day inactive for the first four weeks of the season due to the Colts' depth at wide receiver.
After the Colts got word of the arrest, Rogers was cut, and coach Chuck Pagano said, "We have released Da'Rick Rogers for conduct detrimental. We've released him. Would be inappropriate to speak further on that."
Rogers went undrafted in 2013 largely because of numerous off-field issues at Tennessee. He left there for Tennessee Tech. A local TV report in Indianapolis reported that Colts cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy was a passenger in the car that was pulled over at 3:35 a.m.
S Dewey McDonald was signed to the active roster from the practice squad after WR Da'Rick Rogers was released. McDonald caught the eye of the Colts' coaching staff during OTAs and training camp. He was an undrafted rookie from California (Pa.).
08/31/14 - WR Da'Rick Rogers made enough of an impression on the coaching staff to earn a spot on the team's regular-season roster. Rogers will most likely end up being the No. 6 receiver. But his obvious big-play skills loomed large in the decision to keep him around a little while longer.
08/29/14 - WR Da'Rick Rogers is fighting for a roster spot with the Colts. Rogers has shown outstanding physical skills to be an NFL wide receiver. He has big-play possibilities due to his size, speed and ability to go up after the football. But Rogers does some head-scratching things, such as punt a football after scoring a touchdown against Cincinnati in the final preseason game. His kick resulted in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and a talking to from head coach Chuck Pagano on the sideline.
08/17/14 - WR Da'Rick Rogers has all the talent to be an outstanding NFL player. Size, speed, and the athletic ability to come up with the football in a crowd. Consistency, though, remains an issue for Rogers. And he has to learn to play smarter and not let his emotions get the best of him.
08/09/14 - WR Da'Rick Rogers' big-play ability showed itself again in the Jets preseason loss. Rogers was on the receiving end of a long Matt Hasselbeck pass in the second quarter of the New York game. He is currently fighting for a roster spot as the Colts' fifth receiver.
