The Saskatchewan Roughriders got back out on the field Wednesday to start preparing for Sunday’s home game against Edmonton.
Leading receiver Naaman Roosevelt missed the workout. Riders Head Coach & GM Chris Jones said Roosevelt is “bunged up” and is being evaluated by medical staff to see if he’ll be available for the game.
Running back Curtis Steele worked with the first team offense and Jones said he’s happy to have the prized free agent back for the first time in several weeks. He said he’ll be happier if Steele is able to execute his blocking assignments successfully than he would be for Steele to ignite the team’s struggling ground attack.
Defensive end Eric Norwood has also been “cleared to play” in Week 13. The former Ticat was signed as a free agent on May 9 but has been unable to play until now due to a knee injury. Jones said although Norwood’s medically free to play, it remains to be seen if he’s ready for game action. This week of practice will determine that.
