MONTREAL - As if riding a three-game winning streak wasn’t reason enough for the Alouettes to be smiling these days, the team got more good news with the return of cornerback Seth Williams, defensive end Luc Mullinder and star receiver Jamel Richardson to practice on Monday.
With the Als’ encounter with the Grey Cup Champion B.C. Lions still a few days away, head coach Marc Trestman is confident the league’s top receiver last season will be ready to go on Friday.
“We expect Jamel to play,” admitted Trestman of Richardson who has been on the shelf for two weeks with a hamstring injury. “I know he felt good today and we’ll have to see how he feels tomorrow. But right now it looks promising.”
Richardson is hopeful his coach’s diagnosis is accurate.
