--Just one more practice in Saskatoon. It will happen Tuesday before the team departs the University of Saskatchewan and returns to Mosaic Stadium. On Thursday, they will meet the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a 7 o'clock start to close out the pre-season.
Notes on Monday's workout.
- Head Coach Craig Dickenson confirmed draft pick Chris Judge is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL last week. He was hoping to make the team after not playing football since 2014.
- Dickenson liked what receiver Justin McInnis brought to the table as he practiced with the squad Monday. McInnis, the 6th pick overall in this year's draft, has not been on the field much due to an injury suffered early in training camp. While Dickenson liked what McInnis was doing, he said he won't play against Winnipeg
- Former U of S placekicker Sean Stenger has been signed with Felix Menard-Briere being released. His rouge was the only point the Riders got in Calgary.
- On one of the last plays of the day, Zach Collaros threw a deep ball that was caught by K.D Cannon. While it looked good, Dickenson says don't expect this team to go long often. “That’s great, but this huckin and chucki’ is not going to be our thing this year. We’re going to move the ball downfield and gain yards in a methodical way. If we have a shot, we’re going to take it. I don’t believe in stepping back and throwing bombs all day. We got one, but we were lucky.”
