The move would provide LA with valuable cap space

Last week we asked whether Robbie Rogers would return to the field after compliments following a surgical procedure left Rogers with nerve damage in his left foot, a condition that has kept the defender on the sidelines for some time.

This morning, Kevin Baxter just might have gotten to the bottom of it.

The move is sad, but not terribly surprising. Rogers has not played for over four months now and showed no signs of a comeback, on the contrary, Robbie had begun to shy away from public events and recently deleted Galaxy info on his Twitter bio, so you could almost feel an announcement coming.

The good news? By placing the 29-year-old on the season-ending injury list, LA can potentially clear up some cap space. Rogers’ base salary in 2016 was $220,000, so that’s a sizable chunk of change for the Galaxy to work with.

Expect official word to come soon enough.
