Labeled as a long shot Friday by Redskins coach Mike Shanahan in todays season finale, cornerback Carlos Rogers is inactive because of a calf injury.

Rogers, who is a free agent after the season, could see his Redskins career end after six years. He missed four of the last seven games with two hamstring injury and the calf problem and finishes the year with two interceptions.

Rogers averaged 62.8 snaps in his 12 games.

Phillip Buchanon is expected to get the start opposite DeAngelo Hall.

Linebacker Brian Orakpo will return after missing one game.

The other Redskins inactives are quarterback Donovan McNabb, running backs James Davis and Andre Brown, center Erik Cook, guard Derrick Dockery and defensive tackle Joe Joseph.

Joseph is inactive a week after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
