3DOWNNATION: COLLAROS CLEARS CONCUSSION PROTOCOL

Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Zach Collaros has passed concussion protocol tests and, barring unexpected setbacks, he’s expected back at practice in preparation for the Riders game against the Ottawa Redblacks on Saturday.

Collaros left the Banjo Bowl against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after taking a hit in the fourth quarter. He was driven into the turf after Bombers defender Jeff Hecht came in unblocked off the edge causing a fumble that was recovered by Winnipeg.

Brandon Bridge entered the game for Collaros, who had thrown from 173 yards and an interception, and guided the Riders the rest of the way in a 32-27 at Investors Group Field.

The injury might have been a concern given that Collaros missed games earlier this season with a head injury and also sat out three games due to a head injury in 2016 and missed time in 2014 after suffering a concussion.

Yes we all understand the Junk man (Justin Dunk) had received his info on the sly from inside the confines of the Riders organization.
In the 3 years I’ve been reading Junk Man and his crib at 3DownNation. When Junk reports before anyone else. Not once have I read a false article.
I can assure you that if Junk is reporting that Collaros passed the concussion protocol. Then Zack will be in person and the main target of Ottawa’s front 4 Sac Department.
That’s all well and good. But now it’s time for QB Collaros to show us why he’s getting the big bucks! I like Zack but he ain’t doing any different shit that Darian wasn’t doing when Jones so eloquently said Durant has been marginally successful. The defence that backed up Durants offence was just bad.
So prove to everyone Zack why you are getting the big money. Sure the team is winning games this year. However you don’t pay $450K for a QB to manage the game. That kind of money in the CFL buys a QB that can run an offence that attacks and scores majors.
