Rogers was hit in the helmet by a net bowler prior to Australia first Test win in Dominica and missed the game after suffering from dizziness and headaches.
Australia team doctor Peter Brukner said it was too early to make a call on Rogers’ availability for the second Test, but admitted the veteran was still showing concussion symptoms.
“Chris is still experiencing some symptoms of concussion and the plan is have him take it easy another few days,” Brukner is quoted as saying by AAP.
“In regards to his availability for selection for the second Test, it’s too early to say at this stage.”
Australia powered to a nine-wicket win over the hosts in the first Test, and the stellar performance of Adam Voges will mean selectors will be unlikely to make a change going into the Kingston Test.
Rogers, however, will be looking to maximise his time at the crease at Australia look toward the 2015 Ashes series which begins next month.
