ASHBURN, Va. -- The sight of Carlos Rogers wearing a cast to protect a broken right thumb earlier this week provoked at least one cynic to suggest that the Washington Redskins cornerback might have an excuse now in case he dropped another potential interception Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

As it turned out, the injury, suffered in Sunday's 25-22 defeat at home to the Tennessee Titans, required surgery and will keep Rogers on the sideline at the RCA Dome. The search for healthy players is not the only mission Washington's defense will be on against the Colts.
