“It still comes down to being healthy,” Patterson said. “He’s been cleared for his knee, hasn’t been cleared for everything else.”

Rogers, a standout quarterback from Bossier City, Louisiana, has been limited since coming to TCU. He sustained a significant knee injury, including a torn anterior cruciate ligament, in the season opener for Parkway High School in August 2017.
It remains to be seen if Rogers would even be fully cleared to play this season. If he’s available, it would still require TCU to be in the right game situation for Rogers to make his college debut.
With the NCAA’s new redshirt rule that allows players to take a redshirt if they appear in four-or-fewer games, Rogers would seemingly be a candidate to see game action if the situation presents itself.
For now, though, signs point to him being sidelined the entire season. The risk likely doesn’t justify the reward at this point.
