Cleveland NT Shaun Rogers hasn’t been cleared to practice after offseason ankle surgery, and according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the team hasn’t decided whether to put him on the Physically Unable to Play list to open the year.

“I don't want to put any definitive timeline on it,” coach Eric Mangini said. “We'll see where it is."

If Rogers starts on the PUP list, he’d be out for at least six weeks. Rogers could also be suspended by the NFL for his arrest in April on gun charges, but if he’s on the injured list, he would serve that suspension at the same time.

So, what happens if Shaun Rogers isn’t ready to play at the start of the season? Considering the 3-4 defense is built around the 6-foot-4, 350-pounder, it wouldn’t be a positive development.

Ahtyba Rubin most likely would take Rogers’ spot in the middle of the defensive line. Like Rogers, Rubin is a solid run-stuffer who has stamina issues. But he doesn’t dominate double-teams like Rogers. Still, after Rogers broke his ankle last year, the Browns run defense seemed to improve with Rubin getting the playing time.

That’s not me saying Rubin is a better player than Rogers, because he’s most definitely not. I’m just saying an overweight Rogers doesn’t help his team quite as much as some people might think. Also, Rubin might be in line for more playing time at NT anyway, because the Browns have talked about having Rogers line up in the DE spot.
