|Jones on Wednesday|
"We are able by CFL rules to have tryout people at practice every single day," Jones said Wednesday. "And we've brought a lot of people in because we're never going to quit searching for talent. The day that you quit searching for good players - I mean you oughta know - because of how many injuries we've had. We've had more injuries than anybody in the CFL. It's no secret.
"If they wanna cry about how many people we have on the 6-game (Injured List), all those are legitimate injuries. We've gotta make sure we know who the next person is that's gonna step in and play because that next game is gonna come. They don't change the schedule because our kicker gets hurt Day 3, or Xavier Fulton gets hurt Day 2. The games are coming and so that's what they pay me to do; so that I know who the next person is to step in and play."
Jones seemed more concerned about the fact Bo-Levi Mitchell would be able to make such a careless accusation on Twitter.
"It's up to Huff and Dave how they allow their players to talk on social media," Jones smirked. "We're just here to improve our football team."
Meanwhile after Mitchell's accusation on Tuesday, the Stamps pivot has been hit with a barrage of hate from Rider fans which prompted him to dedicate Saturday's "win" to Rider fans. Calgary and Saskatchewan will meet up Saturday afternoon at Mosaic Stadium.
"That's the first I heard about that but he can talk all he wants. That's fine. That's fine," snorted Riders defensive end Justin Capicciotti. "We'll see him on the field. Who cares what a quarterback from Calgary has to say about our organization? That's as far as I'm concerned. I'll see him on Saturday. If that gives our guys extra fuel, then I feel bad for him."
Let the games begin.
