Riders’ Manny Arceneaux won’t play versus Stampeders

Receiver Manny Arceneaux needs more time before he can suit up for Saskatchewan for the first time.

“Manny’s gone, he’s still another week,” Riders head coach Craig Dickenson said.

Arceneaux suffered a torn ACL against Saskatchewan on August 25, 2018 and has been working back towards 100 per cent. Saskatchewan signed Arceneaux to a one-year contract through the 2019 season during free agency in February. He played in nine games last season making 32 catches for 553 yards and one touchdown – 1,000-yard pace.

He spent the first eight years of his CFL career with the B.C. Lions. The 31-year-old has played 129 games recording 556 receptions for 8,169 yards and 55 touchdowns. Arceneaux had three straight 1,000-yard seasons – including a career-high 1,566 yards in 2016 – from 2015-2017. Two times Arceneaux has been named a CFL all-star (2015 and 2016).

The all-star calibre talent isn’t recovered enough to play, yet.
