Riders’ Jones doesn’t name starting QB, says both Collaros and Bridge to play against Eskimos

Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Chris Jones wouldn’t divulge the name of his starting quarterback for the Riders game against the Eskimos.

Zach Collaros was activated from the six-game injured list on Monday after recovering since Week 2 when Ottawa defensive lineman Avery Ellis put a hit on the 29-year-old and his helmet caught the pivot under the chin causing a concussion.

Bridge completed 68-of-104 passes for 669 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions while going 2-2 as the starter in place of Collaros with rookie David Watford mixing in when Jones felt it was warranted.

“[Collaros is] certainly going to play a bunch,” Jones said. “It doesn’t matter, I know for sure Zach Collaros will play and Brandon Bridge I’d say will probably play a little bit too.”

It’s possible Jones does the same and employs his spin on the two-quarterback system with Collaros and Bridge.
