Bridge to start again when Riders host Ticats

The Canadian Press

REGINA — Despite being pulled in last Saturday’s loss to the Montreal Alouettes, it seems as though Brandon Bridge will remain Saskatchewan’s starter this week when the Riders host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

According to both Rod Pedersen and Arielle Zerr, head coach Chris Jones confirmed after Monday’s practice.

The Riders have closed Tuesday’s practice as they ready for a quick turnaround and host their third home game of the year on Thursday night.

Bridge struggled to get into rhythm against the Als last Saturday, tossing two interceptions on 8 of 18 passing and only 111 yards.  He was pulled in favour of third-stringer David Watford who finished out the contest.

Bridge is in place of Zach Collaros who is out with a concussion and his next test will not be an easy one as he and the Riders face a Ticats team that has been dominating opponents in time of possession in the first three weeks of the season.
