RIDER INJURY UPDATE

Saskatchewan Roughriders General Manager Brendan Taman met with reporters in Regina Monday morning to update the club's injury situation following Saturday's 30-26 loss to the visiting Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Middle linebacker Shea Emry has a neck injury and is doubtful for this week.  DB Keenan MacDougal has a separated shoulder and will be out for awhile.  Returner/receiver Nic Demski has a shoulder injury as well and his status is up in the air. DB Marshay Green sustained a knee injury and he too is pending.

Head Coach Corey Chamblin did say that as of now it looks like receiver Weston Dressler and safety Tyron Brackenridge will be good to go for week 2 at home to the Toronto Argonauts.

Emry,MacDougal and Demski all Nationals (still hate that term)all starters. Bad enough Durant is done but what bad luck in having these three as well.Chamblin will have an interesting few days juggling while Tamam will be looking under stones to try and find a suitable replacement for 3rd string. Any QB come to mind???

At least Dressler and Brackenridge will play so that is positive. Hopefully they are not coming back early and re-injure whatever it was that had them out.

Can this Brackenridge fellow tackle?

Glad he made everything as clear as mud. What a waste of time.

Taman in telephone conversation begging Tino, please come back, please! so sorry we wrote you off. Tino, says "show me the money" then proceeds to come back to riderville by Monday night depending on availability of air flights to the smokey prairie.

Wonder if all these injuries are a result of no contact in training camp?

As for Tino Sunseri coming back... he doesn't sell tickets!

We are really looking for a 3rd string guy now (next year 4th string), so why not try for a guy like Keith Price or a developmental guy... suddenly we have to go through the Sunseri thing again and drag that out for another year or so. Remind me of years of Nelone Greene...

Roddy was pretty dismissive on Tino when he was released. Might take a little sucking up to get back on the good graces again.

Maybe find someone that can or wants to tackle, while they're at it. I was at the game on Saturday nite, and the replays of the missed tackles on TV make it look worse.

Wow! You're an absolute idiot. The great Negative Ned at work again.

I said Tino and I aren't close. A point on which Tino would agree. You guys are unbelievable.

At the time Tino needed to be cut. At this point he's a viable #2. Things and situations change.

Tino will be back. There isn't really any other option. Why are we even debating it?

Duh! said...

If Tino wants to play football for a cheque, he will take the job. No chance any opinion of any sports broadcaster will make any difference. But if Gainer had dissed him then ...

My hey could offer Tino a bag of peanuts and he would take it. He has zero bargaining power...zilch.

All the injuries to QB 's in the league and he hasn't signed anywhere. He would know that he is out of options.

Riders are fine. Relax folks.

Hearing Keith Price is on his way back. This encourages me!

Getting Tino back is like letting Pedersen in as Quarterback. This team could be in big trouble if anybody else goes down.

In 2008 the Riders injury list stretched from Regina to Moose Jaw, including 6 broken legs. The team went 12-6 and hosted a playoff game but back then they had a real coach and GM.

It is not "could be in trouble" - if any team in the CFL has their #1 AND #2 go down, they are in big trouble.

Real fans back then too. That was before all the part timers like you jumped on the bandwagon

In '08 they had a GM with contacts and a coach the players loved.

Six broken legs? Nice guess. How many of those apparent legs were week one? How did that season turn out?

The had a real coach and GM ... yep - they are just basking in all those Cup victories.

Hey Dumbo, check it out. There was 6 broken legs that year.

The Elephant said...

Big F'n deal - who cares about 2008 and broken legs and whatever else mattered in 2008. It is 2015! Get with the program and cheer on the Riders. Whining and wringing of hand, blaming whoever is a waste of your time and mine.

Just pointing out the obvious. We don't have the top end to deal with this.

Who is saying they won't have a home playoff game? Oh yeah, the "fans".

Easily worst fans in the league.

Don't paint the Rider fan base as fools based on the posting of a hater or a lone wolf fan with "issues". The Rider fan base is defined by its love of the team. The fact that there are armchair managers and coaches among us does not detract from this fact. Whatever turns ones crank to get through the day, I always say.
