Da'Rick Rogers released by Colts after arrest for DUI

Monday September 29th, 2014

The Indianapolis Colts released wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers on Monday for "conduct detrimental to the team" after news emerged that he was arrested for suspicion of DUI on Sunday night in Indiana.

Charly Arnolt of Fox59 in Indiana reported that Rogers was arrested at 3:35 am on the campus of IUPUI, after police saw his vehicle driving on and over the yellow line. Arnolt also said that Rogers' teammate Loucheiz Purifoy was riding in the car when it was pulled over.

Rogers was arrested in July 2010 on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in connection with a bar fight in Knoxville. He entered the league undrafted after marijuana use prompted his dismissal from the University of Tennessee.

According to Indianapolis Star reporter Stephen Holder, Rogers knew his status with the team was tenuous:

In six games last season, Rogers recorded 192 yards and two touchdowns on 14 receptions. He has not been active for any of the Colts' regular season games this year.
