Riders QB Shuffle Continues
Riders head coach Corey Chamblin announced Wednesday afternoon Kevin Glenn has been put on the six game injured list. Glenn suffered a torn pectoral injury that Chamblin says will not require surgery.
It means Brett Smith will become the 6th Rider quarterback to start a game since last year's Banjo Bowl as he joins Darian Durant, Glenn, Tino Sunseri, Kerry Joseph and Seth Doege.
Chamblin said another quarterback would be brought in and it appears that quarterback could be Blake Sims. Those who follow US College Football closely would know Sims was the quarterback of the Alabama Crimson Tide who were the number one ranked team in college football until getting knocked off by the eventual national champion Ohio State Buckeyes in the Sugar Bowl.
Sims spent one year as QB of the Tide and in that one year, he completed 64 and a half percent of his passes, threw 28 TD's, 10 INTS and had just under 3500 yards passing.
