LAFAYETTE — Louisiana red-shirt sophomore Chase Rogers will see his Louisiana football career come to a disappointing end. Billy Napier announced Monday the tight end broke his foot for the third time with the Cajuns. Hours later reports surfaced that Roger will transfer to Ole Miss.

Rogers is from Mississippi and moves closer home to recover.

He played in eleven games as a Cajun, catching eight passes for 65 yards and a touchdown.

Saturday, during the team's second scrimmage, tight ends Hunter Bergeron and Johnny Lumpkin also suffered injuries leaving Louisiana thin at that position.

"It's going to challenge our creativity," said Napier Monday. "We have a good running back room. We have a good o-line room. We're going to have to use some of those contingency plans we're always working on."
