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.
