The waiting game continues with Kevin Glenn.
The Rider quarterback missed practice on Monday with a hand injury and Tuesday’s workout was closed at Mosaic Stadium.
Rider quarterback coach Jarious Jackson says they’re getting both Glenn and back-up Brandon Bridge ready to start Friday at Hamilton.
“Whether it’s Banrdon starting, or it’s K-G, or vice-versa, we’ll determine that as the time gets closer,” Jackson told 620 CKRM’s Rod Pederson. “His hand was feeling better today. He actually threw a few balls. We’ll see closer to game time.”
In the meantime, the Saskatchewan Roughriders visit a Hamilton team on Friday which has suddenly become hot.
After an 0-and-8 start and a coaching change from Kent Austin to June Jones, the Ticats have now won their past two games.
Rider coach Chris Jones says his counterpart has Hamilton playing better football.
“It’s not just necessarily under June Jones,” Chris Jones said. “You’ve got the same coaching staff, same administrative staff. Certainly June has got his flavour he puts on the team. But they certainly are playing at a very fast level right now.”
Rider quarterbacks coach Jarious Jackson says, defensively, Hamilton has stepped up their game on their two-game win streak.
“Definitely,” Jackson said. ” [Defensive Coordinator Phillip] Lolley is bring more heat. I think he’s sticking true to the different coverages that they want to run.”
The Riders visit the Ticats Friday at 5:00 on the Cooperators Rider Radio Network.
