“He just has to do the little things,” offensive coordinator Todd Haley said, according to Fowler. “He has to show he’s accountable and that we can trust him and that he’s the same guy every day. If he does that, he’s shown he can do the things on the field necessary to make plays and help us.”
More details have surfaced as to why Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Eli Rogers was benched for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. It appears Rogers was benched for disciplinary reasons.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports Rogers was a healthy scratch against New England for violation of a team rule.
Rogers has 13 receptions on the season after breaking out during the preseason and training camp. He has also missed two games with turf toe. Accountability has been an issue for the talented wide receiver.
