    [Yahoo! Sports] Injury bug strikes (Yahoo! Sports)

    After just one full week of preseason action, several teams find themselves needing to make injury replacements.


    Detroit Lions
    The Lions appear to be sending a final and clear-cut message to underachieving former No. 2 overall pick, wide receiver Charles Rogers, who had already fallen to third-team on the depth chart earlier this summer.

    Rogers, who sat out of both practice sessions on Tuesday because of sore knees, later stated that while he was a little sore there was nothing wrong with him to keep him out for an extended period of time. If the Lions are limiting his time on the field to keep him from getting hurt -- since he has a history of injuries in his three-year career -- they are narrowing their options. Most teams seem content to just wait-and-see if the Lions will be forced to release either Rogers or Mike Williams later this summer.

    When you consider that Jerry Porter (Oakland) and Ashley Lelie (Denver) are currently on the trade market, it is not likely that the Lions could get more than a conditional draft choice for either Rogers or Williams at this point.
