When the Riders return to the practice field this week, expect your social media feeds to filled with information about Zach Collaros.
Is he practicing? Is he with the first team?
Green Zone contributor Rob Vanstone of the Regina Leader-Post tweeted that Collaros was fine and is expected to be ready to go for the West Semi-Final according to his sources.
Fans are concerned about Collaros’ status and durability after he left an Oct. 27 game following a hit from B.C.’s Odell Willis.
I don’t believe that Zach Collaros will go down as one the greatest CFL quarterbacks ever, but, in thinking short-term, he does give this Riders team the best chance to win.
Brandon Bridge hasn’t had the impact that he had last year. The signing of Drew Tate gives the Riders some experience in the stable, but neither Bridge or Tate will be a threat against a Bomber defence featuring Adam Bighill and Kevin Fogg.
The reports about Collaros’ health need to be correct for the Riders to have a chance on Sunday.
