The Colts wasted no time in cutting Da’Rick Rogers.

Just moments after word surfaced that Rogers had been arrested for driving under the influence, coach Chuck Pagano told reporters that the team had cut Rogers.

“We have released Da’Rick Rogers for conduct detrimental,” Pagano said, via Mike Chappell of RTV6. “We’ve released him. Would be inappropriate to speak further on that.”

Rogers, who led the SEC in catches and yards during his sophomore season at Tennessee, has great talent as a receiver. But he left Tennessee because of failed drug tests and was already on thin ice in the NFL. This arrest sealed his fate, and may have ended his NFL career.
