RIDERS HIT BY INJURIES AGAIN

While the Riders enjoy some days off in Ottawa following Friday's 32-30 OT win over the RedBlacks, the club's been hit with some more tough injury news.

Receivers Jeff Fuller (thumb) and Armanti Edwards (hand) are reportedly done for the season after getting hurt in the Ottawa game.

Receiver Nic Demski (shoulder) suffered an injury as well, but is only expected to miss this week's game.

The club's leading receiver Naaman Roosevelt has missed the past three games and isn't expected back this week.  Second-leading receiver Ricky Collins Jr. could return this week after missing a handful of games due to injury.

The Riders will practice all week in Ottawa before visiting the Toronto Argonauts next Saturday.

Good thing you won't be using this as an excuse though.

Well that is crappy news. Hopefully there are players that can step up.

Will Collins be back?

Terrible news - just a few minutes ago I heard/watched your call on the Armanti Edwards sliding touchdown in Sportsnet top 30 plays of the month. ( I believe in the top 10)

I think people are starting to understand what's been going on all season…

Uf It wasn't for bad luck, the Riders wouldn't have any at all...

And no back ups to step in - whose fault is that ???????

No surprise with Fuller. He's never been able to stay healthy.

Toronto released 3 receivers. I know one got picked up. About the other two not sure. Definitely big losses. Demski not a loss at all.

Celebrate beating that awful 3-15 record in 2015

those were our backups

I thought we were overloaded at the receiver position, how quickly things change ☹️️

Those suggesting on here we are now short in the receiver position or why we don't have backups obviously didn't read the article.
Here it is again... >> Receivers Jeff Fuller (thumb) and Armanti Edwards (hand) are reportedly done for the season after getting hurt in the Ottawa game.Receiver Nic Demski (shoulder) suffered an injury as well, but is only expected to miss this week's game <<
No where does it say the Riders are short at the receiver position. Other than Roosevelt will not be back next game but Ricky Collins Jr. could be. Come on people! This was Fullers 1st game since he signed a week ago. He only signed for 5 games. He got his wish. He's now paid as a non starter for the remainder of the season then he can go or stay. If he continuous his injury prone ways he can go! He Lyle be a Bowman like receiver if he put his mind to it. At 6'5" and 220lbs he's a big target with speed. He just hasn't been that guy.
The Riders have. Lot of receivers but having to plug and play the next guy up makes it tough on any QB to have your timing down on the long ball. Even 15 yard crossing patterns are hard to time if your receiver hasn't spent much time with the 1st team.

As far as I'm concerned give Fulton an injury settlement and get rid of him.
He's a marvelous athlete but keep him around and every time you're counting on him he'll come up with an oweee.
He should have been a basketball player, he isn't tough enough to play football.

And you're an anonymous coward who lacks the necessary equipment to say that to Fulton's face, Doc.
