YOUNG INJURES HAMSTRING ON DAY 10
"It looked like a hamstring. We'll find out more this afternoon," Riders Head Coach & GM Chris Jones said after the workout. "Anytime you have a quarterback, and you're trying to evaluate quarterbacks, and you get one hurt, it's never a positive."
When asked if this affects Young's status for Saturday's home preseason game against Winnipeg, Jones responded, "We'll see".
On another note, quarterback Jake Heaps was released by the Seattle Seahawks on Monday. Heaps participated in the Roughriders' Florida minicamp in April, however he signed with Seattle just a few days later.
Jones revealed that John Murphy and Jeremy O'Day have both been in contact with Heaps' representatives in the past 24 hours but couldn't say if he'll make his way to Saskatoon.
In order to add Heaps, the Roughriders will have release a player - at any position - and they're not necessarily prepared to do that before Saturday's game.
We'll have more on the SportsCage this afternoon at 4:00 pm from Saskatoon
