It was back to work for the Saskatchewan Roughriders Tuesday...albeit a closed practice as the Green and White got ready to host Ottawa Friday night.
And, most of the discussion afterwards was about quarterbacks. Despite Brandon Bridge coming off the bench and leading the Riders to a come-from-behind 27-24 victory Saturday in Toronto, Saskatchewan G-M and head coach Chris Jones (pictured) maintained that veteran Kevin Glenn would start at quarterback Friday against the RedBlacks. Jones turned the tables on a media question about him having quickly named Glenn the starter.
"Let me ask you this," countered Jones. "Here's the thing I think is important. How many games would (the Riders) have won without him early in the season."
After a second or two of silence, one media member said not too many, to which Jones quickly said, "there you go."
The Roughriders were busy making roster moves Tuesday. The Riders added Canadian receiver Josh Stanford along with import pass-catcher Ja'Juan Story and defensive back Melvin White to the practice roster while releasing import defensive lineman T-J Barnes and Canadian O-lineman Ryan White.
