Three days into Riders training camp, and it seemed as if there was some more intensity.
That was evident when on the very last play of the team period for the morning, a huge cheer erupted from the defensive players after defensive back Dan West planted receiver Clarence Denmark, stopping him shy of a first down. It meant the defense won the padded practice by a narrow margin.
Head Coach and General Manager Chris Jones says “Everybody knows what’s at stake. We just come out here and try to make football fun. That’s what it should be.”
Several players including linebacker Jeff Knox Junior, receiver John Chiles and defensive lineman Justin Capiccotti didn’t practice Wednesday as Jones said they were “nicked up”
Practice will resume at 9 AM Wednesday morning.
