Rogers (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve by the Commanders on Tuesday, Zach Selby of Washington's official site reports.
Rogers suffered a torn Achilles in May and he will now spend the entirety of the 2023 campaign on the sidelines. The 25-year-old was set to compete for depth spot behind Logan Thomas at tight end this season, but the likes of John Bates, Cole Turner and Curtis Hodges will now vie for the top reserve spot.

Rogers was diagnosed Wednesday with a torn Achilles' tendon is slated to undergo surgery next week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Per Rapoport, an MRI confirmed that Rogers suffered damage to his Achilles during Tuesday's OTA practice.The 25-year-old tight end, who caught five balls on six targets for 64 yards in 11 games last season, was expected to compete for a depth spot in a position group that also includes Logan Thomas, John Bates, Cole Turner and Curtis Hodges. While Rogers is expected to make a full recovery from his upcoming surgery, he'll likely miss the entire 2023 season.
Rogers suffered a non-contact Achilles injury during Tuesday's OTA practice, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Rogers will presumably be sent in for an MRI before the Commanders provided an updated diagnosis as well as a timeline for the tight end's return to the field. The 25-year-old played in 11 games for the Commanders last season, recording five catches on six targets for 64 yards.
Rogers caught five of six targets for 64 yards in 11 games during the 2022 season.
Rogers was a dual-threat QB at UNLV and Ohio before catching on with the Commanders as an undrafted free agent and converting to tight end. He's listed at only 225 pounds, but the team nonetheless trusted him to play at least 13 snaps in five straight games Weeks 6-10 while John Bates, Logan Thomas and Cole Turner alternately dealt with injuries. Rogers likely will be tasked with adding weight this offseason and could make a push up the depth chart with no mainstay ahead of him, though he's already 25 and faces an uphill battle to approximate Thomas' unusual career arc (also a college QB, and a late bloomer in the pros).
The Commanders activated Rogers (knee/ankle) from injured reserve Saturday.
Rogers landed on IR with knee and ankle injuries following the Week 10 contest versus Philadelphia. The undrafted rookie was then designated to return to practice Dec. 28, and he'll now be available for Sunday's regular-season finale versus Dallas. Rogers has caught five of six targets for 64 yards across 10 games this season, and it's likely he'll continue to slot into a supplemental role alongside Cole Turner and John Bates while Logan Thomas serves as the team's primary receiving tight end.
