If a trade involving Tigers left-hander Kenny Rogers is going to happen before the end of this season, it likely will occur within the next several days. The deadline to set postseason rosters is Sunday, and multiple officials from other teams believe the Tigers will consider trading Rogers before then. The Tigers placed Rogers -- and several other players -- on trade waivers Friday. By this afternoon, the team will know which of them cleared waivers and which were claimed. If Rogers clears waivers, he could be traded to any team. If Rogers is claimed, the Tigers could attempt to work out a deal with the claiming club. (Detroit Free Press) Comment
The Bengals refused to confirm an NFL Network report that wide receiver Chad Johnson has a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder. Wearing a harness for stability, Johnson claimed Monday, Aug. 25, he needs surgery, but won't get it - that he'll play through the injury and be in the starting lineup at Baltimore on Sept. 7. "I need surgery, but there's still nothing wrong with me," he said. "I'm not going to have (surgery). For what? I've got a season to play." Johnson said he spoke with "about 10 guys," including Kellen Winslow II and Donte Stallworth, who endured similar injuries. (Dayton Daily News) Comment
Penn State still has not announced who will start at quarterback for Saturday's season opener against visiting Coastal Carolina.

Team sources said Clark, a senior, likely would start and that Devlin, a redshirt sophomore out of Downingtown East, probably would get nearly equal playing time, at least in the first game.
