Indianapolis activates Rogers, waives injured DB

The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis is hoping rookie receiver Da'Rick Rogers can help jump start their struggling offense.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound rookie was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Monday. The undrafted rookie started training camp with Buffalo and joined Indy's practice squad Sept. 2. Rogers started his college career at Tennessee and finished at Tennessee Tech.

He'll be back in Tennessee on Thursday night when Indy (6-3) faces the Titans (4-5).

Indy has been looking for receiver help since Reggie Wayne tore the ACL in his right knee Oct. 20.

To make room on the roster, Indy put safety Larry Asante on the waived-injured list. The Colts also signed receiver Josh Lenz to the practice squad Monday.
