Rider fans going to Mosaic Stadium Saturday night hoping to see Vince Young play his first game as a CFL’er will have to wait.
Young suffered a hamstring injury during practice Tuesday, and did not work out with the team on Saskatoon Wednesday.
After practice, Head Coach and General Manager Chris Jones said the injury would keep him out of the lineup for the pre-season opener against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers that kicks off at 7.
It was thought Young would play a half or more as he competes for the backup job with Bryan Bennett, Brandon Bridge and Marquise Williams.
One other note from Rider camp on Wednesday sees the team trade offensive lineman Matt Vonk to Montreal for receiver/defensive back Denzel Radford.
Radford was Montreal’s 6th round draft pick this year and comes from the University of Calgary.
