|Saskatchewan Roughriders Finalize Game-Day Roster|
|Friday, 13 July 2012 11:36|
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have finalized their 46-man roster for tomorrow.
Brendon Labatte is on the roster, but he won't start. Johan Asiata has been moved into the lineup to replace Labatte. Patrick Neufeld -- the huskie alumn -- will begin tomorrow's game, as he did in games 1 and 2 of the season, on the bench.
The rest of the defense remains the same.
On the offensive side, Justin Harper slides up to start in place of Jordan Sisco. The other change -- we already knew about this one -- Tristan Jackson returns to the lineup but won't play at corner, he'll be the primary kick return man for the Riders tomorrow, when the BC Lions roar into Mosaic Stadium.
Terrell Maze will play a second straight game at corner, after Tristan Jackson was hurt and missed week 2.
Head Coach Corey Chamblin was asked about the change, which has the optics of a player losing his starting job due to an injury, "Actually I talked to him earlier last week and when you come back, it'll be your job but I have a written rule of there's no guy that's going to do 2 [jobs]. He can't be a corner and a returner. So Maze was playing well at the corner, so I said I'd put him at corner this week. He wants to do both, but he's only doing 1."
Darian Durant will lead his team against Travis Lulay and the defending Grey Cup Champions tomorrow at 1 o'clock. Our pregame show begins at 11 thirty, right here on CJWW.
