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.
