INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Sept. 29, 2014)– Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers was released from the team Monday following a DUI arrest early Monday morning, police said.

The Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Police Department pulled over Rogers, 23, at 3:35 a.m. after he was seen driving over the yellow street line near W. 16th and Indiana St. on the IUPUI campus.

Cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy was riding passenger.

He was breathalyzed and registered a BAC of at least .08% and less than .15%.

Rogers is in his second season with the Colts. Head coach Chuck Pagano said Monday the wide receiver had been released from the team for conduct detrimental.

“It’s a pretty easy place to thrive and to grow… If you can’t make it here, it’s gonna be tough to make it anywhere,” Pagano said of the Circle City in a press conference Monday.

Rogers has played in five career games (three starts) with the Colts, totaling 14 receptions for 192 yards and two touchdowns. He also recorded one reception for 46 yards in two postseason contests. Rogers was originally signed to the Colts practice squad on September 2, 2013.
