Always at the front lines of Detroit Sports.

News broke earlier this week about the untimely passing of former Michigan State Spartans and first round Lions draft selection Charles Rogers, who had been battling cancer and liver disease.

And they’ll be honoring his memory at some point during Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

“At some point during the game we’ll take a moment to recognize Charles Rogers’ passing similar to how we’ve acknowledged other recently deceased Legends,” a team rep was quoted as saying.

The Lions released the following statement after his passing:

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Charles Rogers.”

“From Saginaw, to East Lansing, to Detroit, Charles’ connection to the state of Michigan and its football community was felt by many during the course of his life.”

The Lions and Cowboys kick off at Ford Field on Sunday at 1:00 PM EST.
