NRL's Rogers gets better injury news

Titans' centre Mat Rogers' season is still alive with the NRL club's medical staff confident he could be back playing within four to six weeks.

Rogers won't be able to have scans on his injured left knee until Monday, but a club spokesman said on Saturday his latest injury was not as bad as first feared.

There were concerns Rogers might have required major knee surgery following a collision with Dragons' five-eighth Jamie Soward in the first half of Friday night's 19-6 loss.

Had that been the case, Rogers' season and possibly his career might have been over.

But word on Saturday was his injury was most likely a medial ligament strain, with the dual international facing four to six weeks of rehabilitation therapy.

The news is a massive relief for the Titans, who have to go another two NRL games without skipper Scott Prince (thumb).

Rogers is in the process of trying to sort out his playing future with the Titans, with rumours of a possible return to Cronulla in 2011 if the Gold Coast can't accommodate him.

He was the only major injury to come out of the loss to the Dragons, but it will result in a backline reshuffle for the Gold Coast's Monday week clash with Manly.
