Whether or not Rob Bagg sees his first game action of the season for the Saskatchewan Roughriders Saturday is not known.
Head coach and General Manager Chris Jones is optimistic Bagg will be able to suit up after an ankle injury in the pre-season meant he was a spectator in the one-point loss to Montreal.
Jones knows Bagg wants to be on the field against Winnipeg Saturday.
“He’s a guy who has been a life-long Rider and to open a new stadium is something he wants to be a part of’’ Jones said. “We just want to make sure that he’s healthy before we put him on the field.’’
The Riders also welcomed a receiver with NFL experience to the fold on Wednesday adding former New Orleans Saint Joseph Morgan to the practice roster.
Two players were also fined by the CFL for actions in Montreal. The two are receiver Naaman Roosevelt and offensive lineman Thaddeus Coleman. Roosevelt’s fine was for a crack-back block while Coleman was tagged for a dangerous block.
