Lions | Rogers getting snaps at Z receiver; but it remains R. Williams' job

The Detroit Free Press reports Detroit Lions WR Charles Rogers has wanted to return to Z, the coveted receiving position in the West Coast offense, and he got some snaps there the past two practices. However, the starting job at that position belongs to WR Roy Williams. Offensive co-coordinator Greg Olson, who is now calling the plays, sounds like he wants to throw to Rogers more often. "Charles has practiced better," Olson said. "We're trying to find a niche for him or a role for him. Obviously Roy Williams is our featured receiver and we plan on getting the ball to Roy, but somebody else has got to pick up the slack there in that group." Rogers needs to earn a spot to be on the team's 45-man active list for this weekend's game. Rogers, rookie WR Mike Williams and WR Troy Edwards are competing for one or two spots.
