Bills waived CB Justin Rogers.

The 2011 seventh-rounder started the Bills' first five games as they dealt with a wave of injuries in their cornerback corps, but had been a healthy scratch each of the past six weeks.

Bills secondary coach George Catavolos has high hopes that seventh-round CB Justin Rogers will make an impact as a rookie.

"I think this guy might be the ... I don't want to say surprise of the draft," said Catavolos, "but I do think this young man has the make up intelligence-wise and physical skills that could be very beneficial for us this season." Rogers showed elite return ability and ball skills at small-school Richmond, but he has to get stronger at just 5'10" and 183 pounds.

Bills selected Richmond CB Justin Rogers with the No. 206 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Rogers was an impact return man in the Colonial Athletic Conference, breaking the league's all-time record for kick return yards and also earning first-team accolades as a punt returner. A dominant small schooler, Rogers racked up 12 career interceptions with three pick-sixes. He's obviously going to have to get stronger and bigger, but the 5-foot-10, 183-pounder has a chance. He ran a 4.5-flat at the Combine with a 4.20 short shuttle.
