Riders Roster Changes/New Punter In Town/Bamba's Road To BC

The Riders will make four roster changes for the game tomorrow in BC. Coming onto the active 46 man roster are Kenny Rowe, Macho Harris, Ismael Bamba and Ricky Schmitt.  Schmitt is a punter signed by the team today. He played NFL pre-season football with Arizona before being released. He has bounced around the NFL trying out with several teams.

Coming off the roster are Joe Lobendahn, Terrell Maze, Jay Alford and Taj Smith.

Looking at the depth chart, the starters are

WR-Getzlaf, Bamba, Hargraves, McHenry
OL-Fulton, Labatte, Picard, Best, Neufeld

DL-Hawkins, Shologan, Williams, George
LB-Williams, Kromah, Brackenridge
DB-Harris, McKenzie, Patrick, Russ, Jackson

The full 46 man roster can be seen on

An interesting story has developed with Riders rookie receiver Ismael Bamba. He did not have any photo ID and was not cleared to fly to Vancouver. He is driving to the game with those in the team's equipment truck. Only in the CFL!
