Riders aware of Mike Reilly's progress

The Saskatchewan Roughriders and Edmonton Eskimos are set to meet for the second time this season on Saturday...but don't expect everything to be the same.

Since that week one blow out the Eskimos have slowly been getting their game together, most notably at the quarterback position.

Last week against the Toronto Argonauts, Mike Reilly nearly out duelled future hall of fame quarterback Ricky Ray in a 36-33 loss at the Rogers Centre. In that game Reilly threw for 511 yards and three touchdowns, and has over 800 yards passing in his last couple of games.

Rob Bagg both relieved and embarrassed following test results

A day after getting the good news, Rob Bagg broke his silence after injuring his knee against the Montreal Alouettes.

Bagg met with reporters for the first time since spraining his knee against the Als on Saturday afternoon. Most assumed the worst when Bagg went down clutching his knee, including Bagg himself.

"Just because of what's happened in the past," said Bagg. "It's just one of those sensitive things."

Jock Sanders putting regrettable games behind him

It hasn't been easy to be Jock Sanders the last couple of weeks.

The Riders return man has had a rough go of it of late. In Calgary he fielded a punt that he probably shouldn't have and wasn't able to get a good return out of it. Then last week at home against Montreal Sanders had another day to forget as he fumbled the ball twice. He didn't finish the game as the kick returner. Luckily for Sanders the defense was able to hold the Als to a field goal both times.

No torn knee ligaments for Riders receiver Rob Bagg

It's been a long time coming, but finally some good news for Roughriders receiver Rob Bagg.

The Kingston, Ontario native has had just about as bad of a run lately as you can get in football, suffering serious knee injuries on both knees over the last few years. Throughout it all Bagg has been working hard to prove the critics wrong and come back from torn ligaments that end the careers of many players before him.

Saskatoon Blades set up for training camp

The Saskatoon Blades are getting ready to kick off a 50th WHL season.

Training camp begins Wednesday with registration and the players hitting the ice Thursday.

For the past five years, the Blades haven't finished worse than second in the East Division. That could all change this year as the team begins a youth movement following last year's Memorial Cup run.

Head coach Dave Struch understands this year may be a little different.

Riders safety Tyron Brackenridge named defensive player of the week

There wasn't much to take from the Riders win over the Montreal Alouettes, but safety Tyron Brackenridge will remember that one for a while.

Brackenridge was named the CFL's defensive player of the week after he registered two force fumbles and one interception in the Riders 24-21 win over the Als.

Through the first seven games of the season, the linebacker turned safety has 22 tackles, three knockdowns, two forced fumbles and one interception.

Rob Bagg continues to undergo tests, ruled out of Saturday's game

The Riders returned to the practice field on Tuesday, but there was one glaring omission.

Receiver Rob Bagg, who injured his knee in Saturday's win over the Montreal Alouettes did not take part. Bagg did run a little bit on the sidelines, and performed a few drills by himself, but did not do much after stretch, and eventually left the field and did not return.

So what's the status of Bagg?

Video shows Roughrider Rob Bagg running stairs after injury Saturday

The Roughriders win Saturday afternoon wasn't easy to watch, in more ways than one.

There's the obvious one, because it wasn't a very good game until the final few minutes. The other way, was the number of injuries to both teams. However, one injury above all others stands out in these parts, and that's the one to receiver Rob Bagg.

Late in the second quarter, Bagg went down grabbing his knee on a rather innocent looking play where he was blocking for running back Kory Sheets as he ran up the gut for a first down over mid-field.
