Shaun Rogers' Blood Clot May Not Be Season-Ending After All

Shaun Rogers of the New York Giants may be able to play this season after all, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. After pronouncing last week that the 33-year-old defensive tackle was going to miss the entire 2012 season due to a blood clot in his leg, Coughlin stated on Tuesday afternoon that there is a chance that Rogers could rejoin the team.

Following a second opinion, it was determined that a potential return wasn't out of the question and that Rogers' use of a different medication could allow him to resume on-field activities more quickly than was originally anticipated.

In fact, Rogers was seen in the injury area riding a stationary bike on Tuesday.
