The Roughriders are hoping for a breakout game on offense Saturday night when they take on the B-C Lions at Mosaic Stadium.
Last week Darian Durant used seven different receivers in the game at Edmonton and he says it’s because he’s getting to more comfortable with his new teammates. “Yeah it’s all about trust. I mean in camp when you are rotating reps with the other QB’s and the receivers aren’t in every time you are it’s kind of hard to develop that chemistry so it’s all about trust.”
Durant is still getting used to a new offense and receiver Kendial Lawrence – who played in this system last year with Edmonton – says he’s working with his quarterback on getting it down. “We talk back and forth and just different looks and different plays that he has a question about. Just asks me how we did in previous years and what can we get better at and how can we get better at it.”
The Riders host the Lions Saturday at 5:00 on the Cooperators Rider Radio Network.
