Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Chester Rogers suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss to the Titans.
He played only one snap against Tennessee before leaving the game, not to return. According to Adam Schefter, he will undergo further testing on Monday, but initial opinions suggest he will miss the remainder of the season.
Initial tests revealed that Colts’ WR Chester Rogers suffered a likely season-ending fracture in his knee Sunday, though he is undergoing further testing today to determine the extent of the injury, per source.

The Colts came in to the game shorthanded at wide receiver already. T.Y. Hilton sat out, Parris Campbell did not play and Devin Funchess will not leave injured reserve in 2019. Now they will miss Rogers for the playoff push.
Rogers played in all 12 games of the season so far, starting in six of them. He has hauled in 16 of 28 targets for 179 yards and two touchdowns. Not fantastic production, but definitely necessary due to how thin Indy is at receiver.
Zach Pascal and Ashton Dulin are the remaining receivers on the depth chart. The Colts will likely have to sign a wide receiver from the practice squad to fill the hole Rogers left. Hilton has not been ruled out for the rest of the year, and should return to the field eventually.
Indianapolis travels to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers on December 8.
