RIDERS BACK TO WORK
The Roughriders returned to the practice field on Monday for the first time since Friday's 30-7 victory at Calgary.
Here are some notes:
1 - Head Coach & GM Chris Jones announced Kevin Glenn will start at quarterback Friday when the team hosts the Montreal Alouettes (7:30 pm, TSN, 620 CKRM Rider Network).
2 - Jones also revealed leading receiver Duron Carter will once again play offense and defense, and start at CB. The 25-year old had a Pick 6 against the Stampeders but didn't see any time on offense. Jones said that's because Carter's services weren't needed on offense because of the way the game was going.
3 - Asked what other positions Carter can play proficiently, Duron said "quarterback".
4 - WR Naaman Roosevelt will miss a second straight game due to a concussion. LB Sam Eguavoen will miss this game as well due to injury.
5 - 10-year OL Brendon Labatte was signed to a 4-year contract extension on Monday. The Weyburn product said talks on the new contract extend back a year-and-a-half. The 2013 CFL Lineman of the Year said this is is home and he doesn't want to play anywhere else.
6 - Regarding being pulled after two series in Calgary, quarterback Kevin Glenn said he can't get worried about things he can't control. He said there's a lot of other issues that are more troublesome at this time of year than that.
