IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Senior Iowa fullback Brad Rogers' career with the Hawkeyes is over.
Coach Kirk Ferentz said Friday that Rogers and sophomore linebacker Jim Poggi will end their football careers because of ``persistent injury issues.''
Rogers, of Toledo, Ohio, played in 27 games over the past three seasons with Iowa. He had one more year of eligibility.
Poggi, a linebacker from Towson, Md., did not play the past two seasons because of injuries. He was one of 13 Iowa players who ended up hospitalized with rhabdomyolysis, a rare muscle disorder that can cause kidney damage, two years ago after offseason workouts.
