Getzlaf missed Saturday's 34-31 loss to Calgary with a foot injury and it appears Wednesday's setback was related to that.
"All I know is he'll be out for this game," said Rider coach Corey Chamblin after the workout. "I don't know the length of time he'll be out. We wanted to see today if he could play this week but it didn't react the way he wanted it to. It reacted negatively so he'll be out this week."
That means for a second-straight week Getzlaf will be replaced by rookie receiver Alex Carroll. The Queen's product says it's tough to see a teammate and friend go down, but it's time for him to step up.
"Yeah for sure," Carroll admitted. "You gotta feel bad when a guy goes down or can't play. All the same it's my opportunity and my chance to shine. I have to make the most of it."
The Riders visit the 4-4 Ottawa RedBlacks Sunday at 2:00.
