The Giants are now holding out a "ray of hope" that the blood clot in DT Shaun Rogers' left calf is not season-ending in nature.
A change in medication has helped Rogers deal with the blood clot better than originally expected. "We're just going to hang on as well as we can," said Coughlin. "There is a chance he can come back and play."

Coach Tom Coughlin indicated that the blood clot in DT Shaun Rogers' leg is a season-ending injury.
It's bad luck for a player who had shown renewed commitment by dropping 50 pounds since the start of the offseason. With Marvin Austin (back) and Chris Canty (knee) also sidelined, the Giants' depth up front has taken a hit. Turning 34 in March, Rogers may have played his last NFL snap.

The New York Post says DT Shaun Rogers is already looking like a "failed experiment" for the Giants.
Rogers, 33, has missed all of minicamp due to a mysterious elbow condition. He's not talking about the injury and not guaranteeing he'll be ready for training camp. Rogers is behind Chris Canty, Linval Joseph, Marvin Austin and perhaps even Rocky Bernard at defensive tackle.

Giants signed DT Shaun Rogers, formerly of the Saints.
Beat writer Mike Garafolo had heard the Giants were "nosing around" Albert Haynesworth as well. Expectations for the 33-year-old Rogers should be low after he flamed out in New Orleans last season, playing less than a third of the defensive snaps. He'll provide depth up front in New York, so the Giants can concentrate on other positions in the draft.

The Saints are letting free agent DL Shaun Rogers and Aubrayo Franklin hit the open market.
Making $4 million, Rogers was bust in his first season in New Orleans in 2011, tallying just 22 tackles and zero sacks. Franklin was even less productive, making just 17 tackles in a part-time role. The Saints' conversion to a 4-3 defense means Franklin will likely walk. If Rogers is back, it will be at a cheaper price.

The Saints only used DT Shaun Rogers for 15 snaps in Thursday night's NFL opener.
Out of their comfort zone after falling behind early, the Saints resorted to a three-man line of Mitch King, Aubrayo Franklin (zero pass-rush ability), and Sedrick Ellis. Pro Football Focus counted just seven QB hurries in 125 pass-rush attempts from New Orleans. Of course, Rogers didn't get pressure on his plays, either. The good news for the Saints is that they'll usually play with the lead this season. They were overmatched against Green Bay.
