“He had cancer, whether that was related to his liver I don’t know,” Rogers’ ex-Saginaw High basketball coach Marshall Thomas said.

Rogers’ high school football coach Don Durrett added, “I called his mom at the hospital over the weekend and got a chance to talk to Charles. He said he was going to the Lord.”

TMZ also added that a report has it that the ex-NFL player had suffered a medical issue recently and was being treated at a medical facility last week.
