The Saskatchewan Roughriders have not been on the field since their victory over Hamilton on July 5 to even their record at 2-2.
With the team having the bye week, it allowed many to get out of Riderville for a few days to fly home and be with family while others stuck around to enjoy some rest and relaxation.
That all changes Sunday though when the team gets back on the field at Mosaic Stadium to prepare for Thursday’s game in Hamilton and as they do there are some questions that need to be answered.
First and foremost is the health of quarterback Zach Collaros. A concussion sustained in Week 2 against Ottawa has kept Collaros on the sidelines. While head coach and general manager Chris Jones did not know if that concussion would keep Collaros on the injured list for the full six games when it happened, there are some wondering if he could return for this game and come off the list early while others feel he wil be on for the full six and perhaps more.
If Collaros is unable to suit up in Hamilton, it will mean the team will likely start Brandon Bridge with David Watford shuffling in and out of the huddle as he did in the victory against the Ti-Cats.
Many will also wonder if Duron Carter will be practicing with the offence or defence. It is thought the team has been in search of some defensive backs over the bye that can improve their depth at the position allowing Carter to return to his natural position of receiver.
Thursday’s game in Hamilton starts at 5:30 with our coverage on 620 CKRM starting at 2:30.
