BYU basketball spokesperson Kyle Chilton confirmed Friday morning that junior wing Stephen Rogers will be out 2-4 weeks after having surgery on Thursday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.
The Cougars' first game without Rogers will be against Baylor at noon on Saturday at the Marriott Center.
Rogers re-injured the knee during practice on Thursday.
Asked about Rogers' status after practice Thursday, Rose expressed major Rogers is averaging 9.9 points per game for the 8-2 Cougars, fourth-best on the team behind Noah Hartsock (17.3), Charles Abouo (12.3) and Brandon Davies (10.6).
Rogers is generally the first player off the bench for Rose's Cougars. His minutes will most likely go to freshman Damarcus Harrison or freshman Josh Sharp.
The sharpshooter from Mesa, Ariz., is shooting .514 from the field and .395 from three-point range.
