Bolster the Return Game? The Houston Texans Bring in Wide Receiver Eli Rogers in for a Work Out On Monday

Patrick D. Starr

After the Houston Texans loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, head coach Bill O'Brien alluded to their punt return game making better decisions during the game.


On Monday, the Texans have brought in wide receiver and returner Eli Rogers to the facility to work him out and get a closer look. Rogers was the Pittsburgh Steelers primary punt return man from 2016-2017.

For his career, Rogers averaged 7.3 yards a return on 26 opportunities. Also, Rogers has appeared in 30 games, starting 15 of them catching 78 passes for 822 yards and four receiving touchdowns. 

If the Texans decide to take a chance on Rogers, he could help out in the return game and depth at wide receiver. More importantly, it could create a roster issue with current return man DeAndre Carter.
