Rogers was struck in the helmet by a Portland State defender after he threw a pass with 11:09 left in the third.
The extent of his injury was not immediately available. The hit drew a roughing-the-passer penalty.
All the players from both teams went to the ambulance and stood as medical personnel worked on Rogers and prepared to place him on a stretcher. The crowd started chanting ``Gary, Gary.''
Rogers, who began the season as the starter before being replaced by Kevin Lopina prior to the third game, had only entered the game late in the first half when Lopina suffered a shoulder injury.
Washington State was leading 24-3 at the time of the Rogers' injury.
