Craig Dickenson spoke to the media on Wednesday and provided an update on star receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert.
The six-foot-three, 225-pound target will be out for the next seven-to-ten days with a cut hand. The injury took place at the end of Tuesday’s practice session and held Williams out of practice on Wednesday.
Dickenson also revealed that starting left tackle Terran Vaughn suffered a shoulder injury, though he does not anticipate that it is serious.
Williams-Lambert had a breakout season with the Riders in 2018 when he caught 62 passes for 764 yards and four touchdowns. He parlayed that into a contract with the Chicago Bears but he was released at the end of training camp in August 2019.
He rejoined the Riders in September 2019 but dressed for only three games down the stretch, making five catches for 57 yards. He is pencilled-in as a starter for Saskatchewan’s receiving corps in 2021.
