The Riders got back on the field for the first time today following Sunday's shellacking of the Bombers. Head coach Ken Miller told those in attendance the following.
--Linebacker Aaron Wagner has a knee injury that will keep him out for a while as surgery will be needed to correct the problem.
--Jason Armstead may not be done throwing the football
--He is hoping the players can put the loss to Edmonton out of their minds even though it would seem many have not forgotten blowing a 22 point lead at home.
--Kitwana Jones and Leron Mitchell will likely play Saturday, but Donovan Alexander is doubtful because of a bad hamstring. As for Jason Clermont, Miller says he can't say yet whether or not he will draw back into the lineup. The coach added Clermont has not been a problem this year and has been like an extra coach despite the fact he is not seeing the touches he likely hoped for.
--Kanye West did not interrupt Miller during his daily gathering with the media.
--After practice, the team lined up one by one by their locker room to sign autographs for a group of kids that were to watch their football heros. It took a while for the players to get through the line, but every autograph was signed and every kid left happy. It was wondered aloud by some if that would have happened a few years ago and is just another sign how much the culture has changed since Jim Hopson became president and CEO of this football team.
That is all!
