Riders QB Kevin Glenn a game-time decision

Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterbacks Kevin Glenn did not for practice for a third straight day on Wednesday and will be game time decision when the Riders play the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday night.

The 38-year-old suffered a bruised hand in the Banjo Bowl loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday and did not practice this week. Wednesday is the final day of practice for the Riders before they travel to Hamilton on Thursday.

The 38-year-old has thrown for 3,057 yards, 21 touchdowns, 10 interceptions while completing 70 per cent of his passes in 10 games for the Riders this season.

If Glenn can’t play, it’s expected Canadian Brandon Bridge will face Hamilton. Bridge, a native of Mississauga, is the last Canadian quarterback to start a CFL game, doing so in the Montreal Alouettes’ 2015 regular-season finale, a 30-24 overtime loss to Saskatchewan.

Bridge completed 4-of-8 passes for 67 yards and an interception against Winnipeg while adding a 10-yard run. The six-foot-five Canadian is 13-of-20 passing this season for 203 yards with three TDs and the one pick.

Bridge started his CFL career with Montreal in 2015 and has completed 50-of-73 passes for 648 yards with five TDs and two interceptions overall.

    He’s not playing. Everyone knows what Chris Jones won’t admit.

  2. Well we all know you’re an idiot. Chris Jones doesn’t have to admit that.

  3. Glenn has enough experience that he could probably play without practising but I have my doubts he’ll see the field. Of course it wouldn’t surprise me if C Jones is playing mind games with J Jones thinking he can outwit him!

    Bridge 3 picks by halftime, Adams starts the 2nd

  5. …..and the Riders still win.

  6. Who in their right mind actually thinks Hamilton is going to win? HAMILTON people! Bridge or The VAJ will open it up on the lowly Tabbies.

    • The formerly “lowly” Ti-Cats. Guess you didn’t watch the last game.

    • Well TOshow although I’m a die hard Rider fan I wouldn’t sh*t talk the Ticats too soon. They have been the target of everybody in the league and are playing underdog football from here in. They are going to pin their ears back and play like hell to silence the critics and could seriously make moves in the East.

      Now – if the Riders play to their ability and actually come to play the entire game, start to finish, Hamilton could have their hands full. I take every game and every team seriously – hey its the CFL, anything can happen. Cheers, Go Riders!!!

        Anything can happen is absolutely correct! However I do not understand why the Cats are such a phenomenon after just two wins while the riders were still in question after two and had lost very close games prior. Yes they were blown out by BC and Calgary by some extant but The Cats I think only gave Edmonton trouble. Just my take.

  7. ….like the Argos did right? 😉
