In his weekly radio appearance on 620 CKRM's SportsCage on Monday, Roughrider GM Brendan Taman provided an update on wide receiver Rob Bagg who left Saturday's 24-21 win over Montreal with a knee injury in the first half.
"I just left the medical meeting to come on the radio," Taman said. "It's obviously an interesting set of circumstances we're dealing with here. Rob's a very important piece to our team. The update is we're further examining him (on Tuesday). We did some tests Monday afternoon and we need to evaluate it more. I'm not trying to be vague or not give you the whole story.
"I think it's doubtful he plays this upcoming game but the extent of the injury or where we're going to go with it, we're not sure yet. He has more appointments planned with our medical staff Tuesday afternoon and we'll know a lot more on Tuesday later in the day.
"We want to be very thorough with this and make sure we have the proper diagnosis. I guess the good news about this is we don't have a full 100% written off situation but I don't want to create false hope either."
The Roughriders (6-1) visit the Edmonton Eskimos (1-6) Saturday at 2:00 pm.
