Kerry Joseph got in plenty of practice as the starting quarterback on Thursday, but neither he nor head coach Corey Chamblin were saying yet what that means for Sunday's game.
"You know I don't make those decisions toward the end of the week," said Chamblin. "He looked good in there, still has to knock the rust off, but we'll make that decision as we go through a couple of practices there."
A three-on-three basketball team from Saskatoon is coming home from Japan with silver medals after losing to Serbia at the FIBA World Tour.
“We are still licking our wounds right now because we wanted to go there and win. We’re a little bit disappointed,” Michael Linklater, one of the four players on the team, said.
Linklater said the team played strong throughout the tournament before their defence fell in the final game Sunday with a crushing 21-11 loss.
What looked to be a promising game at the start ended with the Saskatchewan Roughriders being brutally outscored 40-9 by the Montreal Alouettes on Monday.
The Green and White, led by running-back Anthony Allen, actually took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter of the game. Tino Sunseri started the game but wasn't actually used much out of the gate; Allen ran wild to pick up the bulk of his 126 yards in the first quarter. That included the Riders' only offence of the game, an 11-yard touchdown reception.
Hockey season is now in full swing and arenas around Regina are busy once again.
Available ice times are at a premium as thousands of people scramble to strap on the blades this fall. The City of Regina confirms demand is higher than in previous years.
"We have higher registration numbers across a lot of the minor sports programs and that causes an increase in the demand for ice," said Ted Schaeffer, coordinator of sports facilities and special events.
The Riders are back on the road today trying to pick up a rare win in the Eastern time-zone.
Heading east has been a struggle for the Green and White, save for a night game earlier in the year against the Ottawa RedBlacks, the Riders have lost games in both Toronto and Hamilton.
One of the biggest reasons for those struggles could be the time change, especially when the team has to play at 11 a.m. Saskatchewan time.
The Riders close out the Eastern part of the schedule this week in Montreal against the Alouettes.

As the cold rolls in, the time to put away the golf clubs is nigh and when golfers return to two of Regina's courses next season, they'll look a little different.
Renovations are being done on the clubhouses at the Tor Hill and Murray golf courses during the off-season.
Ken Poure, manager of the golf courses, cemeteries, and landscape trades for the City of Regina, said they'll be replacing some of the flooring at the Tor Hill clubhouse.
The Riders are once again making a change at quarterback this week, kind of.
Tino Sunseri will start Monday afternoon against the Montreal Alouettes after Seth Doege got the start last week behind centre against the Calgary Stampeders.
Of course, Sunseri did end up playing a little over half of the game against the Stamps after coming in for Doege when he threw three interceptions. So, it's not really a change at quarterback but officially on the depth chart it will be.
The Regina Pats point streak is over after a 3-1 loss to the Tri-City Americans on Friday night.
Before the game the team celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1974 Memorial Cup championship team and what followed in the first period appeared to be a team ready to play and win like a championship team.
The Rider roster is about to get a big boost.
Thanks to some extra days off this week, the Saskatchewan Roughriders appear to be getting some key players back from the injured list. Fullback Neal Hughes and offensive lineman Chris Best are eligible to come off the six-game injured list and have been practicing all week.
"It's been very tough to sit on the sidelines, obviously I want to be out there," said Hughes, who's been out since week two with a foot injury. "It's a great feeling practicing with the guys."
